Yes. So I you see my point then? It's easy to trust the boss when you don't know, and if you have a boss with a low moral threshold then there is nothing stopping him from abusing that trust.
That would be illegal.

I have to admit, I've seen a lot of shady stuff in restaurant ops (not owners, necessarily). I'm not that sure this proposal will do that much to open up that many new doors for corruption. The unethical ones will steal with or without regulation.
Heck. One of my neighbors kids worked for a place where the owner kept all the tips.... you don't like it, you don't work here.
A. Why the Department is Considering Action As explained in greater detail earlier in the analysis,
the Department has serious concerns that it incorrectly construed the statute in promulgating its current tip regulations to apply to employers that have paid a direct cash wage of at least the full Federal minimum wage to their tipped employees and serious concerns about those regulations as a policy matter. The Department is therefore proposing to rescind those portions of its tip regulations at 29 CFR part 56 531, Subpart D that impose restrictions on employers that pay a direct cash wage of at least the full Federal minimum wage and do not claim a tip credit against their minimum wage obligations.
B. Statement of Objectives and Legal Basis for the Proposed Rule
The Department’s regulations addressing the treatment of tipped employees under federal law at 29 CFR part 531, Subpart D are derived from section 3(m) of the FLSA. See 29 U.S.C. 203(m). As explained earlier, the Department now has serious concerns that it incorrectly construed the statute in promulgating its current tip regulations to apply to employers that do not take a tip credit, i.e., where an employee receives at least the full $7.25 Federal minimum wage directly from the employer, and serious concerns about the regulations as a policy matter, especially in light of changed circumstances. The purpose of Section 3(m)’s tip credit provision is to allow an employer to subsidize a portion of its Federal minimum wage obligation through a credit against the tips given to employees by customers. If an employer pays its tipped employees a direct cash wage of at least the full Federal minimum wage (currently $7.25 per hour) but reallocates equal or greater amount of the tips received by its employees, there is a question as to whether the employer is circumventing the protections of Section 3(m) because it is utilizing tips received by its employees towards its minimum wage obligations to a greater extent than permitted under the statute. Where, however, an employer has paid employees a direct cash wage of at least the full Federal minimum wage and does not reallocate the employee tips directly, but requires that employee tips be distributed to non-tipped employees through a tip pool, there is a strong argument that the statutory protections of Section 3(m) are not circumvented.

I'd love to hear Trump Supporters take on how this is good, why they support it, and why waiters/waitresses and food service professionals deserve to make even less.
Well, when business owners start to make more money they magically become altruistic and provide more jobs and raises to their workers instead of just further enriching themselves.
At least that's what the trickle me down people would have you believe.
