Default Starbucks ordered to pay back tips

Starbucks ordered to pay back tips

Quote:
A Superior Court judge on Thursday ordered Starbucks to pay its California baristas more than $100 million in back tips that the coffee chain paid to shift supervisors.

Saying baristas were entitled to $86 million in back tips plus interest, San Diego Superior Court Judge Patricia Cowett also issued an injunction preventing Starbucks' shift supervisors from sharing in future tips.
This is a place where every body pools their tips. I never thought that was fair, but at least the management won't get to share tips anymore from some poor drudge's hard work.

They pool their tips but the breakdown is actually great....

they take the number of hours in a week, and break it down so that you make an average of all tips per hour worked...

Coool. My kids told me Star Bucks workers did pretty well. So I guess this is just another lawsuit under the title: We found out we could sue so we did.

There are places though perhaps not many where the take is not as good and cooks and cashiers share in the waiter's tips. Sometimes people don't pull their weight and it makes the whole tip sharing thing crumby.
Personally, I have gotten paid pretty well toward the end of my career as an LPN and I have yet to make as much as I did one summer at a Ramada Inn Restaurant!
Now, though I couldn't deal with working in the public. If I had a hat it would be off to these Star Bucks kids for dealing so well with people.
