We hear people time and time again complain that they can't get anyone to work. Some people have decided they are just tired of working for the man. They want to see more of their money. They want to be their own boss.
I worked for years in the restaurant business. You see those dreaded one tops all the time. As a server you think, "oh great, not going to be much of a tip." That really is not always the case I have learned.
