Granted, I was in college and did not have to support a family when I worked for Hagadone Hospitality. My minimum wage was adjusted to reflect the tips I made as a waitress and as a caddie. I loved working for Hagadone Hospitality. There were some grumpy grumps as there are with any job that hated the place but those people kept showing up for work anyway. I might have become a grumpy grump myself had I not used the opportunities those part time jobs provided while I got my degree.
