AL Hooters Girls Sue Over Pay

Northwest of Birmingham a Hooters location in Trussville is facing a federal lawsuit over how much it pays its servers. The restaurant allegedly violated federal labor laws by forcing wait staff to share tips with non-wait staff. Two female staffers took the legal action, seeking back pay and overtime. They say when they are forced to perform duties that don’t pay tips, then their hourly rate should go from two-13 an hour to minimum wage.
