  • my So drives for dominos part time from his other job (installing security systems) and he has to claim a ertain percentage of his tips and dominos gives him a certain amount of money for gas per every run he takes... thats all i know of.. i dont think driving has really any difference on how much you make...

    but i also thought that companies have to give you a notice or something if they are going to give you a pay cut. id check that out as well.

  • They gave us a notice 48 hours before the min wage went up. I get a split wage now $5.50 while on the road and $7.25 while in the store in between deliveries and I get a reimbursement on my mileage. But I have to claim 100% on my tips because my boss says it's the federal law to claim 100% of my tips. I've always thought it was a percentage of tips as well. I'm just worried the IRS is going to wonder where all of the sudden these tips are coming from.
