My girlfriend is a hostess for a moderately upscale restaurant where they pay her 5.00$ an hour to host and bus all the tables and do togo's. Since this is under minimum wage they also put her in tip out which the waiters each pay a percentage of their tips towards at the end of the night. However, since business is dead at this restaurant the tipout is equivalent to 1.25 per hour worked so she's making 6.25$ an hour doing 3 jobs and is pushing overtime each week. Is this legal?
