Wynn seems to be prevailing in the tip sharing dispute, but there just seems something wrong about the whole thing, even if he is legally entitled to do it. Aren't there a number of areas where managers make less than the people they manage?

Entertainment comes to mind for managers and entertainers, but in some senses it is a bit unique. I agree though it seems he's almost in the clear with this in regards to it being completed and there is something unsettling with it.

The judge's decision makes more sense to me.

I can understand the culinary union's concern. But there should be a way to work it out. I can see a rule of law that would allow sharing among busboys/waitstaff/bartenders, but not among dealers and pit bosses. The pit boss thing was just Wynn being cheap. He knows full well that pit bosses do little to enhance the experience, and he outright admitted that his motivation was pay.

I think that in many sales professions, the salespeople make more money than their managers. Everything from car dealers to insurance, to drugs.
