living off tips is not the easiest way to live by. we work three times harder then everyone else as much hours hours as any other industry but get paid less. some people dont realize we make our money off genorosity and courtesy of others. a male in this industry is also a black sheep most bartenders servers etc are women . iv been this industry for 5 years from bussing to serving to barbacking and in order to make a proper wage that im able to live off of iv been working two jobs since 19 , 6 days a week . its really a shame that the wage is so low that we must work two jobs a day 20 hours minimum just to provide for our families like everyone else. so before i ask you , the goverment to consider raising the federal minimum wage walk in my shoes for one week two jobs every other day 20 hours and see if were getting what we deserve .
