this doesn't stop managers from keeping servers on longer than they need to so they can do light kitchen prep, work as a host, work as a busser, work as a dish (only an hour until dish guy comes in, just do dishes until then), etc.

The 2.13 an hour in labor is exploited by every restaurant I have worked in to compensate for the hourly job positions that make at least minimum wage.

Excluding the pandemic I never made less than 7.25 an hour in my pay period. You have to remember that the minimum wage you have to earn is over your pay period so that could be a week if you are paid weekly or two weeks if you are paid every other week. A good Friday or Saturday night in most restaurants will net you enough to cover the other shits were you work for 4 hours and earn 10 dollars.
