Double dip theft

Bar and restaurant managers already get away with a kind of theft via their exemption from federal minimum wage laws.

So when it turns out that they're also stealing tips on top of that, well...
Two bartenders who filed a lawsuit claiming that Pat O'Brien's managers stole from the tip jar and withheld overtime pay scored a victory Wednesday (Feb. 4) when a federal judge gave their case collective action status. The ruling allows other former and current bartenders to join the lawsuit against the French Quarter bar.
Tourism Matters, though, so I guess we shouldn't poke it too hard.
