I have just found out today that the restaurant I serve for takes 20 cents out of every credit card slip each server recieves. I have worked there for months and they have never mentioned this to me or put it down in writing, like on my paycheck. I asked them why and they told me it was to pay for the transaction fee. I don't know if it is 100% illegal but I'm pretty sure. They told me to take it up with the owner of the restaurant chain.
I am not afraid to lose this job because I can always find another job over the summer. I am doing this for the rest of the servers that need this job to support their families. 20 cents doesn't sound like a lot but add it up over time and that's a good chunk.
So is it illegal or how do I find that out? Thanks!
