Whom would Jesus tell to f*ck off? These people need an audit. I'm extremely suspicious of the fact that the owner is the only one with the register key. Furthermore, passing off food you purchased elsewhere as your own cooking is as fraudulent as it gets. Oh, and stealing the tips intended for your servers is a crime, too. These jerks need to get what's coming to them in the form of a serious audit and investigation for money-laundering. I hope some enterprising lawyer in Scottsdale decides to represent all those fired servers for restitution and those stolen tips.
Mari - Please dont cus. My little virgin, Christen ears can not take it.
...And of course, Bill O'Reilly would gleefully lead the mob.
I wish it was possible to have a two-way discussion with the fearful-conspiracy theory folks. They don't seem to be able to really listen. Instead everything a "non-believer" says is believed to be further proof of the conspiracy. They won't sit still for a "let's start at the beginning" type interaction. I fully believe that if Jesus walked the earth again they would verbally stone him.
I believe Al Melvin is in this movie...(back to camera)...
I have to do my hair...sorry...
A.J., I'm still not convinced. On an earlier thread, there was someone who seemed to be well versed in labor law who said they were not doing anything illegal. If the position they were hired for says it is a straight salary position and is not tipped, then I think they are not doing anything illegal (obviously not right, but not illegal). If you saw the show, the husband entered all orders into the system. I'll bet he entered them all with his name and none of the orders had the actual order takers. In fact, they seem to use a lot of table runners from what I recall.. perhaps they don't even call their servers "servers".
If they dont let sluts in their "restaurant" why is Amy there?
Also, I wish little french Sammy would yell at me.. really do... Mob ties, my ass!
Nice work, Mari, insulting your readers, or at least Mammey. I think you have a fine career ahead of you at Amy's Bakery. And to save you the effort, I have told myself to f--- off.
MisterBill...you are incorrect. The FLSA (Federal Labor Standards Act) does not waver in terms of what is permissible vs. what is illegal for tipped-wages. ALL servers in traditionally tipped positions (i.e. Server) canNOT have their tips confiscated FOR ANY REASON. Nor is it acceptable to pay them an hourly wage IN LIEU OF tipped wages. Check out Fact Sheet #15, Tipped Employees under the FLSA.

I'll bet that unless you decline most of the stations, this will not end up being cheaper for many people. The ones who would really benefit the most are those who do not want any sports, because ESPN is the most expensive channel for cable providers.
WK Rhynes, I don't think so. But nice try.
Darla, many restaurants sell desserts that are not homemade (there are commercial bakeries that do this), although I will acknowledge that it is unusual for a place that has "bakery" in their name to do so. It also explains why the desserts were so good while the rest of the food was terrible. And on their FB page (before things went completely wacko) they said that they pay their employees a full salary, so in theory the tips are not required to make them whole (tipped employees get a reduced salary at most places), so it is not illegal. That said, taking tips when customers think they are going to the employees is a sleazy thing to do.
The show is a farce. These people were paid actors. Anything that comes out of Hollywood is designed to draw as many ratings as possible. As much money as Fox makes of this, they can afford a stunt like this. Do your homework.
Suddenly Jodi Arias is the 2nd most psychotic female in Arizona
Do you have a minute? Can you please sign this PETITION: https://www.change.org/petitions/the-us-department-of-labor-and-the-wage-and-hour-division-whd-investigate-amy-s-baking-company-bakery-boutique-bistro-in-scottsdale-az
The staff at ABC (both current and former) have been negatively affected due to the company's completely ILLEGAL policy of tip-theft. I think these hardworking servers deserve better...and I'm guessing the State and Fed might agree...
Please help by signing. Thank you!
No clean bar will get a fat ugg-o laid. (but something like the Buffet would) You need to lower your standards doofygirl.
"How do you know they weren't hacked?"
Have you read their previous posts yet?
Check out the one from October 3, 2012 at 7:42pm where they call people who give them bad reviews "camel-toe mafia" and "p***ies".
Or how about in 2010 when they called a man a "loser" and attacked him for giving them a bad review?
Last I knew, hackers didn't have access to time-machines. So obviously they DO talk like this about unhappy customers.
Why is Martha Stewart being mentioned here in this article? She is called an ex-con. Sounds like someone doesn't like Martha Stewart. Sure she was convicted of insider trading, while those on Capital Hill got away with insider trading, which made them millions, and none of those Senators, Congressmen went to jail for insider trading. Now those are the people who should be behind bars, and gain a title of convict.
I have never wished anything but the best to small, independent, business people, especially in Arizona, until I saw this show.
That lady is a psychopathic monster and needs to be committed ASAP
Her husband, suffers from the worst case of low self esteem/short man syndrome I have seen since being pulled over by a TPD bike cop.
