Said the pleb who pays tax to support royalty that`s pretty funny! Good servers at a good establishment make above living wage I was one in college. If you want to see how motivated minimum wage workers are look at McDonalds employees is that what you`d want in a server?

Kudos for the hard work, but there are many reasons for differences in pay, both ways.
You have to take into account hard work, ability, overtime, sickness, seniority, personality, education, plus much more.
In the past I`ve worked the same job-type for two different companies: Chemist.
At one company there were 10 of us with identical jobs. Everyone; male, female, black, white, korean etc, got paid the exact same base wage. I, on average, made $20,000 more a year than one of the ladies simply because she never worked overtime and I never turned it down. (and she thought that this was somehow `unfair`.)
At the other there were 8 of us with identical jobs. Everyone made a different base wage, but it was based specifically on seniority. Most of the ladies made more than I did, a few made less.
