Unfortunately, my boss made it a point on the first night that our business runs off underage people who are able to get into bars.There's a lot of things that I could go off on a tangent about. As for Anonymous' locality, I have no idea what the legalities are. Since they vary from State to State. Although, coming from a very spiteful person, if I was ever unlawfully fired from the position I'd have the cops in there faster than hell to have the bar shut down. Yes, I am that type of person.
I have to go with this on slow nights, since I live on the tipout at the end of the night, but any night when we've got more than 100 or so people inside, I love crushing the 19 year olds dreams.
Who knows, maybe the bar will be up for sale after it's fined for all the underage kids?
Another thing. I would never work for a tip out. Give me a good hourly rate and I'm there. If I have to depend on how well other people do their jobs to make a living then I'm not working. Especially considering the amount of times I've heard bartenders argue about how much to tip out the barback. "We should give him 25%" "Are you kidding? All he did was stock beer and serve the waitress." Bartenders will tip you out the littlest they can without making you suspicious. And imagine if you throw out one of their friends or you don't let one of their friends in. You won't be making rent any time soon.
Perhaps your boss should focus more on doing things to get people into the establishment. Maybe some kind of special events, drink specials or if you have food then maybe food specials.
Overall, I'd be worried if a Police sting happens. The owner might fire you if you get caught even though you're doing what he told you to do.
Hopefully this isn't your only job and it's just supplemental.
Since your doing what the boss tells you to do then I guess you don't have much choice. Keep it up, just remember to cover your own ass.
