Pizza Workers Made $78 An Hour When Boss Gave Them Day’s Profits Instead Of Keeping Them For Himself

A pizza shop in Ohio demonstrated inadvertently just how much profit workers produce – and how little they are paid hourly.

Fox 8 in Cleveland, Ohio reports:

“The owner of a pizza shop in Findlay, Ohio gave his employees the entire day’s profits to show his appreciation for their hard work and loyalty.

Josh Elchert of Heavenly Pizza said he’s been lucky he hasn’t had to cut back on hours or limit the menu because of low staffing . . .

Monday was employee appreciation day and he was aiming for $40 to $50 an hour for his workers. Instead, the shop had 220 orders with $6,300 in sales and $1,200 in tips. He said the $7,500 equaled $78 an hour for his employees that day.”
