And here's the kicker: Remember how this was justified by health care costs? The servers don't even have health coverage. That will come January 1, once the mandate goes into effect, but right now they're getting docked for a service they don't even get. Oh and also, Blue Plate is one of the most successful restaurant companies in town. Oh and also, Burley apparently drives a Porsche, and probably has a doctor he sees regularly, most likely at a facility that doesn't charge its receptionist when he uses a card for his co-pay.
Kristin Hunt is a food/drink staff writer for Thrillist, and will be screaming "Attica!" outside a Blue Plate location the next time she's in Minnesota. Follow her to riots at @kristin_hunt.
