• Ruby Tuesday: Bring Back Auto Gratuity on Parties of 6 or More
    This would eliminate guesswork on bill paying for servers. With auto gratuity, servers can wait on large tables without the fear of their money or time being wasted by a party that gives a minuscule or nonexistent tip.

  • Bring back auto gratuity to parties of six or more at Carrabba's
    Because as a server most of the time when I have to split a large party with other coworkers we make very little money. Most people do not tip accordingly especially large parties.

  • Bring gratuity back to Bubba Gump
    We work hard to provide an excellent service. It hurts when we don't get protected for our money. We daily experience many people whom appreciate the service but don't understand the concept of tipping. We work in a location that has more tourists whose lack of understanding of tipping because of language or cultural barriers jeopardize what we work hard for.

  • Bring Auto Gratuity Back to the Cheesecake Factory!
    This is extremely important because servers who used to average say $1000 a month, are now averaging way less. Our guests shouldn't have a problem with auto gratuity , and the company we work for especially shouldn't have an issue with bringing back auto grat, a company that prides itself on being the best there is and treating eachother like family and having guests satisfaction be our ultimate goal. Help the servers continue this mission for our guests by helping them. Everyone gets paid regardless of what happens, besides servers. Bring Auto grat back everywhere! Real change happens when everyday people come together and stand up for what we believe in is right. I'm confident that if enough people speak out on this issue, we can win. After you've signed the petition, please take a moment to share it with others. It's super easy!

  • Pay front-of-house employees the credit card tips they earn!
    Jason's Deli is a fast-casual chain with hundreds of locations in 29 states. While the degree to which dine-in credit card slips present customers with a tip line varies from store to store, the option is universally presented to those who place carryout orders online. Many customers do in fact opt to add a tip when prompted, creating a significant source of revenue. The front-of-house employees at Jason's Deli work hard for a modest wage and could no doubt really use the extra income that comes from being allowed to keep the tips that one earns. At the same time, the current practice of gratuity retention is deceptive to customers, who reasonably assume when they include a tip in their credit card payment that they are helping out the staff--not just giving more money to the company.

  • Uber Drivers in Jacksonville want pay out minimum $5.00 per ride
    Drivers have direct costs that include gas, repairs & maintenance, insurance as well as indirect costs. Some drivers have additional expenses that include vehicle loans as well as licenses and fees for larger vehicles. Most drivers are full-time and all rely on this income to pay for these and other expenses. Uber has been profiting from the work of these drivers for years to the point that may drivers feel Uber is taking advantage of their position. Drivers are classified as independent contractors; however, they have no control over pricing. Help send a message to Uber that the price manipulation needs to stop. Drivers should be paid more and Uber must raise fares. While Uber is making at least a minimum of $ 2.74 for a ride, Uber Driver is making only $ 2.76 for the same ride. Therefore Uber is luring drivers promising drivers at least $35/hour. Uber is making 49% and drivers are making only 51%. Per example : Uber starts counting mileage when client is in the car, however, drivers can drive more than 20 miles to pick up a client who is going only 1.5 mile. In that case Driver is making only $2.76 for 21.5 miles in 40 minutes.

  • Fair pay for the existing employees!
    It's important to give the existing employees a fair pay raise considering we have worked really hard to receive our pay raises over the years. It's not fair to start an employee off at $8 something as a barista, change it to $9 last year and then your shift supervisors only making a little bit more! For example having an employee starting 10 years ago and working very hard to get her raises and moving up in management , just to be makin a little more now as a barista! It's not right! We older partners have worked extremely hard over these past few years just to be taken advantage of now for all our hard work and dedication to the company! I think it is fair to give employees that have been with the company for longer time the same benefits in raises as the new employees. Another example would be a barista starting two years ago at starting rate then working hard for thier raise, then statbucks decides that they need to pay more for starting employees and now they make the same amount of money. It's just not fair for the employee that worked so hard for the past year to get her raise just to have a new employee start at the same pay. What happened to her hard work that she did for her to earn her raise? It's important to make the older partners feel appreciated and that their hard work is worth it and has been! I've been with the company for 10 yrs now and I started at 6.75 minimum wage worked hard for every single raise, got promoted to shift supervisor,, continuted to work really hard! Now these new hires come in fresh and make $2 less than me! While I have dedicated 10 years and counting doubling my hourly over these years! I worked very hard for all my raises! I just feel like it's not fair for us older employees, I mean even the one that have been with the company only two years! All their hard work isn't compensated now. They get the same pay as a new hire. I think Starbucks need to think serious about this and how the past year with raising the starting pay has effected the employees that have been with the company for a long period of time!

  • Fight for Fighters
    MMA is the fastest growing sport in the world. Mixed Martial Artists should be treated like professional athletes. Fighters should have the right to know how much money a promotion is making from an event. Fans should have the right to see the best possible fights through independent rankings. Extending the Ali Act to MMA would help professionalize the sport & stop the conflicts of interests that currently exist in the sport.

  • Auto gratuity on parties of six or more
    When servers have to tip out for hostess and bartenders this tip comes out of their own tips based on their sales for the day, most of the time servers have to end up paying for guests to sit at their table and eat because they don't tip the proper amount according to their tap. In a place like Miami and other cities that are most of the time visited by tourists from other countries or just people that don't want to tip we are after shortened in our tips and our paychecks are not enough to even pay for our gas to go to work and back.

  • BJ's Brewhouse and Restaurant: Give Servers Auto-Gratuity for Large Parties
    BJ's is a casual dining restaurant chain with 169 locations in 22 states. We're known especially for pizza and award-winning beer. It's a great restaurant to work for, but not providing auto-gratuity for large parties makes it hard for servers. Many customers don't realize gratuity isn't included or don't leave a fair tip when it's a large party. Plus, servers need to pay out a portion of whatever tip we reserve to support staff like busers and host/hostesses. Sometimes, when the restaurant isn't too busy and I'm serving just a few large parties, I won't even take home enough in tips to pay a bus fare. Other restaurants I've worked for include auto-gratuity and it's made a big difference. This issue is something that has plagued us all as employees of this wonderful company. We don't make as much as we should which, has made a lot of our staff contemplate leaving the company.

  • Walmart: Extend your employee discount to cover ALL food
    To many, a 10% employee discount on ALL food may not seem like a lot. But, as Walmart associates, we know it could mean the difference between putting food on the table or going hungry. My name is Nancy Reynolds. I’m a Walmart associate from store 771 in Merritt Island, FL. For me, the food that I’m eligible for with my employee discount isn’t good for my diabetes. I need to eat healthy food multiple times throughout the day and, simply put: that is hard on Walmart pay and hours. If Walmart would extend its employee discount to cover ALL food items, like Target[1], Whole Foods, Trader Joes[2] and many other grocery stores have done, it would help associates and their families across the country. What’s more, Walmart can afford it. This is a win – win. A ten percent discount would allow Walmart associates to spend more money on food at Walmart and in return, we would also be healthier workers. I've even talked to Walmart associates in Canada who said that they receive discounts on ALL of their food, so why not here in the United States too? In the past, Walmart has listened to our calls for change, but it takes associates and community standing together to call for change. The support is there. In our survey of over 3000 Walmart workers, 99% support a ten percent discount on all food. It’s time for Walmart to listen to its associates. The time to act on this is now. Thanksgiving and Christmas are right around the corner. If we can get enough support on this petition before the holiday season, Walmart could change its policy and more associates could have the food we need to provide for our families this holiday season.
