How Tip Share Works at Starbucks

“Under Starbucks rules, once the tip canister fills up, the money is stored in a safe, and at the end of each week, the tips are tallied and distributed to two categories of employees — baristas and shift supervisors — in proportion to the number of hours each employee worked.” (An employee recently sued, saying that shift supervisors shouldn’t get tips since they have authority over baristas, but the court was like, naw, that’s okay, the authority they have is super minimal, they can get some tips.)
