I got a job as a Waffle House server that pays $2.92 an hour and now realize why there's a labor shortage

As a new server at Waffle House, I earn $2.92 an hour plus tips. Remarkably, this is above the minimum wage for tipped workers, which sits at $2.13 an hour. But Waffle House is just a side gig for me. When I'm not at Waffle House, I'm a freelance writer and strategy consultant.
