Pittsburgh Restaurant Pays Workers Salaries and Eliminates Tipping
There's a revolution taking place in Pittsburgh, one that might start a ripple effect across the country.
It seems that a restaurant named Bar Marco is offering its workers full-time salaries, meaning they won't have to scrounge for tips any longer to make ends meet.
The 20 people working at Bar Marco will each earn $35,000, which includes benefits and ten paid vacation days annually.
In return, each employee will be required to work between 40 to 44 hours weekly with two days and one night off.
Some of the workers who signed contracts also helped develop the compensation plan.
