It's a DOL regulation rollback that says the owners can have a tip pool, and a whole lot of verbiage that boils down to "owners must pay out tips till you hit minimum wage, with an owner contribution of at least 2.40$ per hour" as I recall it. IOW, 5 bucks worth of tips go to the owner every hour, plus 5 bucks for each person in "back", because they don't have to pay them even minimum wage, but the "tip pool minimum". Call it ten bucks in tips. To keep it off the records, they usually pay out the tips every night, then just cut a check for the 2.40 per hour at the end of a couple of weeks.

REALLY SUCKS. You wouldn't think that could get worse, but allowing them to keep tips over that minimum wage requirement just made it worse.

The Trump administration is simply legalizing theft.
