South Philly Sports Bar Accused of Skimming Low Wage Workers!

A lawsuit has been filed against the sports bar Chickie’s and Pete’s airport branch for allegedly taking credit card fees out of waitstaff's tips.  These are workers who only earn $2.83 an hour plus their tips. An attorney representing a former employee said,
Any reduction in tips...has a huge impact on their ability to earn a living.
The United States Department of Labor has also started an investigation.

ROC PhiladelphiaPathWays PA, and many other organizations worked with Councilman Jim Kenney last year to pass a bill in Philadelphia ensuring that tipped workers did not have to pay credit card fees from their gratuities.
