Misplaced Loyalty

I have a new client that we’ll call Fred.  He’s worked as a manager in the hospitality industry at the same company for over 10 years.  His boss recently put all the wait staff on a tips only pay structure, which is illegal.  Fred pointed this out to his boss, who then demoted him to a bartender position that is paid tips only.  Fred says that his boss treated him fairly in the past and doesn’t understand what’s happened.  That said, he’s getting a resume and moving on.  He’s been loyal.  He won’t be stupid.  In this economy, workers have to be loyal to themselves, especially when bosses steal their wages.
