Living off tips while serving tables is a very strenuous job. I am a mother of a 2 year old daughter who suffers from her father and I both working long hours where she spends most of the time at a babysitters. 2.13 an hour is not an acceptable wage for servers or anyone who is paid by tips in the restaurant industry! We work long hours and a majority of the time have nothing to show for it! We live day to day hoping we can provide for our families and children and it’s not far!
