Mom Shares $9 Paycheck After Working Over 70 Hours as a Server

Mom Shares $9 Paycheck After Working Over 70 Hours as a Server | INTELLIGENT WORLD TODAY | Scoop.it
The U.S. service industry has been heavily criticized for its employment practices. Restaurants can get away with paying their servers and bartenders just a few dollars an hour and then rely on customers to tip and top up their pay. That's opposed to simply raising the price of food so that workers can be paid a decent hourly wage, and we can do away with tipping altogether.  

Austin, Texas, mother Aaliyah Cortez has been a bartender and server at a local sports bar for a little over a year and knows this practice all too well. She recently decided to create a TikTok to visualize the problem and highlight the importance of tipping by showing a paycheck that totaled $9 for over 70 hours of work.

How CEO pay compares with worker pay at 50 famous companies

How CEO pay compares with worker pay at 50 famous companies | INTELLIGENT WORLD TODAY | Scoop.it
Stacker uses data from AFL-CIO to compare 50 CEOs' salaries to the salaries of their workers.
Al Cannistras insight:

I won’t make any friends with this post, but salary disparity IMO is a serious issue. There is NO reason on earth these folks deserve the high salary (of course, I believe the same to be true for sports folks and movie stars too)…  so many things gone wrong in this country and greed is high on the list – and, one can only wonder why Millennials are leaning toward socialism….
