The US Department of Labor and the Wage and Hour Division (WHD): Investigate Amy's Baking Company Bakery Boutique & Bistro in Scottsdale, AZ

Tipped employees are a valuable, intrinsic part of the Hospitality Industry. They are hardworking men and women who have fought long and nobly to be afforded fair, legal wages and tip income in exchange for service on a daily basis. Amy's Baking Company (ABC) in Scottsdale, AZ, has come out publicly that their policy is to confiscate every single penny earned through tipping patrons, without informing customers, and instead, only pay their servers an hourly wage. This policy is 100% in violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act, and given their extraordinary turn-over rate of employees, it is reasonable to assume 100 - 200+ individuals have been negatively affected by this illegal policy. In the interests of so many hardworking Americans, this company needs to be investigated immediately, and their unsavoury actions need to be halted at once.


Letter to
Arizona Attorney General Tom Horne
The Wage and Hour Division (WHD) The US Department of Labor
By signing this, I'm requesting an immediate investigation of Amy's Baking Company Bakery Boutique & Bistro in Scottsdale, AZ, and a halt of their illegal policy of stealing tips from servers. In the interest of justice, remuneration should also be given to former and current waitstaff to compensate them for the constant loss of tip wages as soon as possible.

Tipped employees are a valuable, intrinsic part of the Hospitality Industry. They are hardworking men and women who have fought long and nobly to be afforded fair, legal wages and tip income in exchange for service on a daily basis. Amy's Baking Company (ABC) in Scottsdale, AZ, has come out publicly that their policy is to confiscate every single penny earned through tipping patrons, without informing customers, and instead, only pay their servers an hourly wage.

Thank you in advance for your assistance, and I truly hope that, together, we can help bring justice to the Service Industry, and demonstrate to business owners the importance of following legal labor requirements.
