Soros-Owned Company Sued for Cheating Minimum Wage Workers

A Syracuse, N.Y.-based restaurant chain owned by liberal billionaire George Soros cheats workers who rely on tips, makes them share tips with managers and forces them to do work for which they won't be tipped, a lawsuit charges.

According to the suit, the Dinosaur Bar-B-Que restaurants in Syracuse, Rochester, Buffalo, Troy, Harlem and Brooklyn didn't properly use the "tipped credit" provision in federal law requiring employers to make up the difference between what workers get tipped and the minimum wage standard, The Syracuse Post-Standard reports.

The suit also charges the chain made tipped workers spend more than 20 percent of their day doing chores for which there was no tipping —  like setting up a dining area —  and for which they should at least get the minimum wage.

The restaurants also scrimped on overtime pay, "misappropriated" tips, made workers share tips with managers at big events, cheated workers whose shift went beyond 10 hours, and kept lousy records of tips and wages, the suit charges.

The lawsuit was filed in federal court in New York City last week, the Post-Standard reports. The law firm, Fitapelli & Schaffer, has filed similar suits against Chipotle Mexican Grill and TGI Fridays, the Post-Standard reports.

The suit names Dinosaur Restaurants, LLC, JLN-Store, Inc., Soros Strategic Partners LP, and chain founder John Stage as defendants. According to the Post-Standard, Stage founded the chain in 1988 and 20 years later sold a majority stake to a company controlled by Soros.
