US restaurant fires employees who received a $10,000 tip on a $32.43 bill.

Mason Jar Cafe refuted the allegations and said the matter had “nothing to do with the tip.”

The American waitress who received an incredible $10,000 tip on a customer's $32.43 bill on February 5 was fired a few days later. However, the restaurant has now stated that her firing had nothing to do with the huge tip and was a “purely business decision.” According to a report in New York Post.

The Mason Jar Cafe in Benton Harbor, located in southern Michigan, fired Linsey Boyd a week after she received the tip. According to the outlet, a customer named Mark left it “in memory of a friend who recently passed away and was in town for the funeral.” The money was split nine ways between the co-workers, with each receiving just over $1,100 each.

Ms. Boyd claimed that problems began to arise inside the restaurant days after she received the large tip and that management ordered her to take Sunday off as a mental health day. She went on to say that management called her late Sunday and asked her to take Monday off as well. She then messaged the restaurant on Monday to ask if she was being asked “in a professional manner not to return.” “For a week I was an amazing, hard-working employee and a wonderful mother… It couldn't have happened to a better person. Now, I'm without a job, for the first time since I was 15.” The now-deleted Facebook post said.

However, Mason Jar Cafe has refuted the claims and said it had “nothing to do with the tip”. The restaurant took to Facebook and issued a clarification, “I will say it had nothing to do with the tip. She received the entire tip, and didn't pay taxes on it (the company did). Yes, she shared the tip on the guy's order,” husband and wife owners Apple Martinez and Jaime Cousins ​​said. “Who left her.”

“We really care about our employees. We've had the same crew for 5-6 years. We have college girls that come home every summer and for four years now, and we take our employees up north at the end of every day,” they added. “In the summer season, we give them a donation fund.” College, we've kept them running through Covid, and we're doing everything we can to not lose staff. “We hope it is clear that this was not a decision taken lightly or hastily.”

Meanwhile, Lynsey Boyd is now spending time with family after the tough week.
