Hello, everyone! Threads about tipping are getting a little out of hand and stifling other discussion in the subreddit, so the mod team has decided to limit posting about tipping to this megathread until further notice.
Please remember that service staff being underpaid is due to bosses refusing to pay a living wage, and that service staff are not at fault for participating in a tip-based economy. Comments that place unfair blame on service staff will be actioned accordingly.

Nor sure how to proceed with a new employee that spouts QAnon theories all day
I'm a newly hired employee whose old position has been replaced by a contractor. This new employee is a QAnon believer who spouts nonsense all day.
His first day, he told me Hurricanes are man made; I had 2 house destroyed by hurricanes when I lived in Fla for a decade.
2nd week, he tells me that Pizzagate is real and Hillary Clinton is head of a pedophile ring.
3rd week, he says Trump is still President.
3 weeks and the guy has taken minimal notes on how to perform the job. My boss asks me how it is going and I told him I am going to reserve judgment on the new employee.
Going on Week 4, if this mentions that the Holocaust is fake, I feel I am not going to be able to control myself and will get violent as my entire blood line was wiped out
Should I tell the manager he is not working out bc the QAnon stuff? Should I tell the guy to can the Qanon stuff or he will lose his job ( he will probably say he lost his job Bc of a Jew) ? Should I just wait for him by his car and beat him to a bloody pulp ?

Local protest on child labor
FROM THE ARTICLE - Saturday, parents and union workers from across Iowa gathered to protest proposed rollbacks to Iowa’s child labor laws.
In Council Bluffs, people gathered in front of Wilson Middle School with picket signs.
GOP members are proposing SF 5-42 and HF 647, which include over 20 changes.
Some of what’s included: kids as young as 14 would be allowed to work 6-hour nightly shifts, 15-year-olds would be allowed to work on assembly production lines and 16 and 17-year-olds would be allowed to serve alcohol.
Protestors say this legislation puts kids and teens at risk.
”It’s not the children of the doctors and the lawyers and company owners that end up in essence being forced to go to work, it’s those folks most marginalized in our society,” said Former Iowa State Senator Mike Gronstal. “Folks whose parents are making minimum wage and they’re scratching their heads thinking how do we make ends meet. This will make it more likely that those kids of those families will end up having to go into the workforce.”

I’m a poor phd student grad worker making a $1,300 a month stipend of which my rent consumes 50% and on top of that I have to suffer the indignity of my landlord using my apartment as a showroom. Please share this, people like my landlord can’t keep winning by default just because they are rich.

Company shocked I won't take 50% wage cut.
Did a side hustle with a Health care company that just ghosted me when the pandemic hit. ( Well known home care company) Got a call two weeks ago from their recruiter who wanted to see if I was interested in being reactivated and that there would be a "bonus" after I worked 40 hours.
Start going through the process and I quickly figure out that all their front office staff is staffed by interns, which is why I can never get a straight answer to some basic questions, specifically the ones regarding pay.
So fast forward this week, after assuming that the pay scale is the same for said side job that I used to do, I discover that this office has a pay rate 50% lower for the work I did in 2019.
After emailing the intern and provided evidence of this disparity in pay I receive a call from someone in authority who tries to explain that they pay an hourly rate for the work as opposed to the flat rate per job I used to receive at the other office.
Mind you this isn't an offer from another company that I am asking them to match. They recruited me, this is the rate from another office ten miles down the road, within their own company, and they can't even bring themselves to say that there is a discrepancy, they think the issue is that I cannot comprehend basic fucking math.
Needless to say, I officially resigned before I even got started again.

Forced to work 9 hour shift in smoke filled production hall with high CO2 levels
Fed up with work conditions, employed at a large meat manufacturing/packing plant, and due to improper ventilation/exhaust of industrial ovens, production areas filled with smoke, along with elevated CO2 levels. Every shift has safety managers, but they signed off on allowing production to continue across two shifts. Smoke made everyone's eyes constantly water, was almost impossible to breathe after a full shift, and those that did go home sick were still penalized with attendance points. No care for employees or their safety and well being, managment only worried about numbers and making company owners more money. HR response is if safety says it's fine then it's fine. Would have quit on the spot if I didn't have a family and mortgage to provide for.

My boss cut my hours nearly in half and was surprised when I resigned
I have worked for a small advertising firm for a year as an entry level specialist. This experience has really showed me that small businesses can be just as greedy than corporations, usually more if the owner is a control freak. The boss is a nightmare to work with on a daily basis but doesn’t value employees. He verbalizes it but never offers raises and last minute decided we weren’t doing performance bonuses anymore (everyone on the team would have qualified based on our internal metric system). Over Christmas, I was notified that my hours were being cut from 40 to 25 for “cost saving initiatives”. I lost all the PTO and benefits that I had when I signed on as full time. My boss justified it as “You live at home so I know that you probably don’t have as many expenses as someone higher up in your field which gives you some flexibility“. I am 22 and a recent graduate but I am trying to save for a house and build my career, so I felt this was borderline discrimination. Throughout this time, my boss had expected me to be at his beck and call, spreading out my hours when immediate needs arose which prevented me from getting another part time job. My salary wasn’t amazing to begin with but going part time was totally unlivable. I could have filed for unemployment but I just wanted out of there ASAP.
Immediately after I was made aware, I started applying to places like crazy. I thought it would look suspicious with all of my work from home requests, but somehow nobody picked up on the fact I was planning to leave. It took a while, nearly 4 months, 200 applications and 30 interviews, but I was finally offered an entry level marketing coordinator position at a large real estate firm. The pay is around the same but the benefits are amazing and it’s nice to know I’ll be in an established company that doesn’t have a 1.8 star GlassDoor review. There will be checks and balances in place and I can grow. I’m excited for the future, I start this week. I gave my 2 weeks notice and everyone was shocked that I was leaving. I don’t know how companies expect people to put up with this. My boss hired a part time replacement with no benefits. It’s a shame really but that’s why they can’t keep anyone for more than a year. When I resigned, I specifically made note of my hours being cut as a reason for my departure.
