Pizza Workers Earned $78 An Hour When Boss Paid Day’s Profits Rather Than Keep It All For Himself

  • The owner of an Ohio pizza shop gave his employees the entire day’s profits to show his appreciation for their hard work and loyalty.
  • “We’ve all seen the ‘Help wanted’ signs everywhere and we’re not exempt of that. We’ve definitely been short staffed, but we’ve always had the employees to operate at a sustainable level,” he said.
  • Heavenly Pizza had $6,300 in sales and $1,200 in tips which equaled $78 an hour for each employee that day.
