Re: “Where Have All Vermont's Line Cooks Gone?

The idea of removing tips from the equation needs to be looked at in a place like Vermont. Being employed at a Burlington restaurant for 3 years, I still don't make a livable wage. And I have student loan debt to pay off. If you want professional employees, look at it the european way, and pay everyone SALARY (that means bene's, sorry owners), and exclude tipping from the equation. There is NOTHING more frustrating than getting to work early in the morning (2-2.5 hours before the waitstaff) and busting my butt, only to get paid half as much, or less, as front of house employees. Not to mention they all get tax breaks and cheaper cost of living, because my entire pay is on the books and theirs isn't. If we traded places, I could do their job and they never could do mine....
