So sorry, I'm broke so I can only pay you $77 for my food. You were great though.

I like where the cooks make 14 flat and are doing more labor.

I didn't say servers don't work hard but the work required to cook that much often goes unappreciated in these posts.

Let's include all restaurant workers. Corporate spots don't tip cooks ever

If cooks made more I would cook. Having to deal with the customers is honestly the worst part of the fucking job so you’re gonna have to pay me money to deal with you. Honestly I’d rather wash dishes for 20 bucks an hour then deal with the fucking customers. It is a soul sucking job.

I dont know why uoure being downvoted. What fancy ass restaurant is paying dishwashers 20 an hour?


u/firesoups Jan 15 '22

Our cooks and dishwashers make the same $20 an hour. Owner says he’s “trying to change the industry from the inside,” but that only applies to our slightly above average wages for the area. We still don’t have PTO, insurance, or any other benefits.
