Topic: Bill's Restaurant Keeping Staff Tips

I just heard some discouraging news.
I was speaking with a person who used to work for Bill's Restaurant and I asked why they had left.
I was told that although 12.5% is automatically added onto every bill, the staff doesn't get much of it.
They said that Bill's tells their staff that instead of paying the basic 6.20 (ish) per hour, they pay them 7.50 (ish) and hour. (Sorry I don't remember the exact number but these are within 10p)
That is supposed to be their share of the tips.
It does not take a great mathematician to figure out that this amounts to an extra 50 or so a week - or 10 per shift.
If a Waiter had kept the 12.5% he would have had a lot more money.
Sure they would have lost a share of it to other staff in the pool but they would have still made a lot more.
It looks to me like Bills's (and probably their sister restaurant Byrons) is hogging the tip money.
You may recall that Carluccio's used to do this a few years back but once it got into the press they reverted.
Let's hope if this news gets spread around that Bills will revert as well
