I'll Work for Free

Our country needs more stories like this:

On Jan. 18, 17 of Mr. B's 31 employees worked exclusively for tips so the boss could trim the payroll in what Barham describes as "tight" economic times. The staff -- organized by VanDam, who is the restaurant's lead server -- was able to save Barham about $700 for a day's work. Employees earned more than $800 in gratuities, which was divided equally among the shift workers, who each took home $51 for a day's work.
