With hockey so successful at the Fairgrounds Arena, I know how hard working our part time concession help are. At games like last night they cranked out four figure numbers in just three hours.
As a long time member of the hospitality industry I realize the value of tips and since these folks are part timers I think they should be able to get tips. Current City policy prohibits that.
As long as the tax laws on reporting through TEFRA are met, I don't see the problem. Obviously you don't want to solicit tips but good service should be rewarded and those who offer tips shouldn't have to be told they can't.
Of course I have an entrepreneurial background, so my views may be tainted.
