That is a thing?

Normaly you cook the pizza and cookies seperatly...


Frozen chicken strips are also good on frozen pizza.


thing to do is this: get a large frozen pizza, and then get the small single-serve pepperoni pizzas and put them on top. Then on the pepperoni on the single-serve pizzas, add a spoonful of tomato-sauce and some cheese. End up with a fractal pizza.

kronicfeld: Dixon Cider: Shouldn't they be pissed at the owner of the original restaurant?

Uh....The protesters were mostly waiters themselves, along with other kitchen workers who say that Molzan still owes them back wages from his now-closed restaurant, Ruggles Grill.


So how much should they be tipped for the protest?

MylesHeartVodak: profplump: kevinboehm: If they're anything like waitstaff up here, they get about $3 per hour, plus tips.

If they're anything like employees in almost any US jurisdiction, they make $7.25/hour or more, regardless of their tips. If they don't they can sue for back wages, because it's not legal to pay them less than that.

/ Not saying that $7.25/hour is great money
// Just saying that tipped employees *never* make less than minimum wage

You know how I know that you have never waited tables?  $2.13/hr for tipped employees is standard in many states.


You know how I know you are too stupid to be anything more than a waiter? Because you didn't comprehend it the last 100 times that somebody posted "the employer must pay the difference if your wages + tips aren't over minimum wage."

Sounds like they are. He's just now a chef at a different restaurant rather than an enterprise of his own. They're making his new job difficult until he pays what he (allegedly) owes them.

Sorry to these people, but this is what an LLC is for. Unless they can "pierce the veil" and show that the restaurant had a ton of cash that he made off with in his pocket, he's in the same boat. I owned a dive bar once. I never made a dime off of it. We scraped and scrounged at the end, and when we finally declared bankruptcy, not everyone got everything they were owed. Fortunately we were able to make a priority out of getting wages to our employees (which we did #1 before anything else), but the last month of rent wasn't paid, and the DirecTV people never got their money.

I am not the LLC. The landlord might want to come to my new place of business (where I am an employee) and protest, but I don't have to dig into my salary at my new job to pay him money the corporation owed him.


Exactly, the truth is that a lot of business owners  (especially restaurants)  fight to the bitter end to keep the doors open and 'making payroll' is usually the last bill to fall and the doors close.  I don't know who this is personally but I doubt he had the money then or has the money now to pay them.

They lost a weeks pay, he probably lost everything.

FTA: "Corner Table's managers and valets scurried outside amid chants of "Ruggles workers are still in the struggle!""

They need someone to come up with a better slogan than that. The rhythm of the sentence takes away from the impact of the rhyme. And perhaps they shouldn't even use "struggle" because the "s" in Ruggles makes the whole thing a little awkward-sounding. The chant is supposed to sound catchy so people will remember it.

Uh....The protesters were mostly waiters themselves, along with other kitchen workers who say that Molzan still owes them back wages from his now-closed restaurant, Ruggles Grill.


"But Molzan is not an owner at Corner Table. That would be Darla Lexington, longtime companion to famous Texas lawyer <a data-cke-saved-href="http://texaslawyer.typepad.com/texas_lawyer_blog/ 2012/01/darla-lexingt on-settles-dispute-with-john-oquinn-estate-foundation.html">John O'Quinn, who died in a car accident in 2009."


Uh... what?
