  • Boss took $500 out of her $600 tip Texas

    Hi, my friend works at a small chinese restaurant and waited on a big wedding party last night. She's an awesome waitress and was tipped $650. Well, her boss only gave her $100 of that tip money. The thing is, she's got a green card to go to school here but not to work legally, so he's been paying her cash only. What do you suggest she does?

    Was there a service charge added to the bill, like 18 or 20%?

    Did she make sub-minimum wage for the party?

    A "green card" DOES allow the individual to work. Are you sure it's a green card she has? Does she have a social security number? Is she filing a tax return?
