A waiter or waitress very seldom can figure out their paychecks, at least I never could when I waitressed. My checks would say 8-900.00 a week and my check after taxes would be 100.00 or less. I never ever made the tips that the pay stub said I did, lunch counter 5 days a week, it just did not happen, but they would say that they had to charge me 8% of the tickets wrote up. I would make maybe 10.00 if that a day on the counter...I also, worked a private club for 1.90 and hour plus tips and being a private club the tips were not very good. Slave labor, I made more money running lanes in a bowling alley...Thank God I am to old to do those jobs anymore...I always worked two jobs and was so happy to rid myself of them kind of jobs..
worked at a marina on Old Ms. Supposed to pay mechanics a bonus. Accountant would figure out bonus and then deduct uniforms, supplies, divide the cost of workers comp insurance between the two mechanics,would keep on deducting until the $1000 bonus would be less than $100. BESIDES deducting this stuff from the paycheck, he was deducting the cost when he did the taxes, too. When he asked me to do the computations, I told him that I thought it was illegal and I would not be part of it and I would not sign it. Place is out of business. Wonder why!!
