Anyone in Atlanta who works as a waiter knows how difficult it can be to get by. Waiters work late hours, deal with ornery customers and make less than minimum wage. They are expected to be friendly and courteous to earn tips that will allow them to make rent that month. For waiters, tips are extremely important. They are not taxed, and waiters get to bring them home at the end of their shifts rather than waiting two weeks for a paycheck. Unfortunately, the Internal Revenue Service has decided to take this away from them.
