so follow the money. the only reason to do this is so customers end up paying a good part of your employee salary not just half the waitress's which is ridiculous too.
I'm pretty sure that monies from the customers are what pays the salary for every employee.
IN. EVERY. BUSINESS.

The bill yes pays the cook, dishwasher, but not the wait staff. The customer tips extra and that makes up half the waiter's wages in many states.
