Occupy Tampa Protest at Outback Steakhouse

Occupy Tampa is getting extremely organized. They recently staged a protest at WalMart. Occupy Tampa protested against Outback Steakhouse's support of SB 2106.

The Republican leadership words the language in a way that doesn't reveal that food servers would have their wages reduced from $4.65 an hour to $2.13. Republicans in the Florida legislature has no problem reducing taxes for corporations. If you are a waiter or waitress trying to survive in a bad economy then you are screwed.

The legislation guarantees that servers will receive $9.98 an hour if they have a bad shift with tips. If you honestly expect restaurant owners to comply with the law in a right to work state than you have a disconnect with reality. It is easier for employers to use threats of termination. Servers will have no one state agency to file complaints.
