p.g. I know several "servers" who definately receive less than minmum hourly wage here in B.C. The tips are factored in to what they are paid - whether they actually get the tips or not. One of the most popular chains is the worst offender - but I won't name names - I just tip well to make up for it. And, no, it is not a family restaurant - but the family that originally owned it made a lot of money lol.
