Default Re: Red Robin eliminates bussers as restaurants combat minimum wage hikes

So that entry level rung is now gone. I presume the plan is to send the poor kid(s) to college so they can get an associate degree in essential oils or some such. Or Culinary Arts where they can hope Red Robins will then hire them to clean pots,,, and tables.
well the minimum wage is about 30 years behind the corporations profit increases, so I don't want any pansy tears
