The three former poker dealers are on the process of getting their tips. They asserted that their tips were taken by the management from them. They are challenging the Naples-Fort Myers Greyhound Track in Florida. The three were Kevin Bellington, Lisa Williams and Steve Gedday who said that the management pressured the dealers, in which they are paid less than the minimum wage because of getting the tips. They have spread the tips to the cashiers and managers who are paid for less than the minimum wage.
A comparison was bring forth by the dealer’s lawyer with restaurants and stated that the management has no single legal right to take part in the tip pool.
The issue is continuously heating the side of both parties. Only the court will give the final decision about the issue. It is another thing that shakes the ground of poker world. The next move will depend on the decision of the management on how they deal with the statement that was thrown by the dealers to them.
It’s not only the game that awaken the interest of players, at the same time the tips that are disseminating.
