and heavy tables and the place is
swept by the waitresses daily after
the noon hour.
The tipping system is very, strong
in Henrici's. Many patrons complain
that if they do not tip they do not
get good service.
That is scarcely the. fault of the
waitress. She is paid a starvation
wage and must depend on tips to get
enough to keep her alive.
But th.e public doesn't seem to rea
lize that, they are paying a large share
of the girl's wages, thus putting
money into Henrici's pocket, which is
very nice of the public.
Henrici's are not fighting or
ganization because they are convinc
ed their employes do not want it.
They are not fighting organization
because they think their employes are
They are fighting it hecause the
Restaurant KeeperV Association is
paying them to do so, and because
the Employers' Association is back
of them and still again the Brewers'
Association, which simply means that
on one hand you have a band of girls
fighting for a. living wage and' one
day a we"ek to rest and on the other
hand you have- a band of millionaires
willing to spend any amount of
money to prevent these girls from ob
taining a living wage at Henrici's, lest
every other restaurant keeper who
pays starvation wages may be forced
to meet the same condition. It is
wealth against necessity.
. And, as usual, the law and the
minions of the law are fighting on
the side of wealth and not on the
side of right."
