I made hella good money bartending at 18-22. Tax free (shhh).
I recall making average 300CAD a shift up after giving my cut back to the house/assistants. At the peak (in clubs fridays/saturdays only), I made 500CAD net after giving house 1-200.
Thinking back, those were the days! Making 3-5K CAD a month (tax free) as a young Uni student. To make 5k/month NET salary in Canada after tax, you would need to making 8-9k/month on paper.
Does Canada have something like the UK TRONC thingy?Most of the places I worked at had fair house rules for kitchen/back staff. Not sure if this is applicable to USA.
In Canada, its not a legal requirement to share tip/cut to the house or kitchen staff. But I think most places have their own rules.
Also, servers/bartenders will ALWAYS tip the kitchen even if there are no house rules. This is because we get hungry and want free food lol.

That was marginally lower over the course of 2020, when activity briefly shuddered to a halt and then roared back to life. But in 2021, as the recovery gained altitude, prices shot up by an average of 0.6% month-on-month.
Speaking of pay raises...
I suspect many of the employees are also compensated in stock which is outperforming inflation.
Wagner did hint that the company’s compensation budgets “reflected” the higher cost of labor that comes with increased prices, according to CNBC. However, he said that the company would rather pay any increased wages based on performance rather than do an increase across the board.
The Verge: Google tells employees it won't raise everyone's wages to keep up with inflation.
