Inflation is rising, and workers are seeing the effects in their dwindling paychecks.

A waitress said she earned just one penny in her paycheck after working 6 weeks at a Nashville restaurant.

The TikTok user, named Linny, shared an image of her paycheck stub that shows she earned a measly $0.01 for 6 weeks of work.

According to the NY Post, minimum wage for restaurant servers in the U.S. is $2.13 an hour. Waitresses like Linny survive on tips from their customers.

However, in Tennessee, federal, Social Security and Medicare taxes are deducted from earned income. That left Linny with just one penny in take home pay.

In her TikTok post, Linny urged her followers to "Tip your servers!!!"

Linny's TikTok fans were not exactly sympathetic. A few men told her to create an OnlyFans account. With her striking good looks, she can earn thousands of dollars a week in revenue.

Other TikTok users -- mostly jealous females -- were more blunt.

"It's not my job to pay your bills. I got my own to pay," said one TikTok user.

Another wrote: "Blame the businesses you're working for, not the consumers. In other countries, they don't need to tip because they pay a living wage."

And a third person wrote: "I've easily made $4400 a month being a server. Don't let those empty checks fool you if you're serving and making so much more than you get as an hourly rate."

Social media expressed disappointment with a New Hampshire restaurant owner after a customer left a $16,000 tip for a bartender and told him not to "spend it all in one place."

The customer who dined at the the Stumble Inn Bar and Grill a few weekends ago, left a $16,000 tip on a $37 bar tab.

But the bartender was forced to share the generous tip with his co-workers.

Owner Michael Zarella said the tip was split between eight bartenders who worked all shifts on June 12.

Social media users say the owner didn't have the right to split the tip among the other bartenders.

By law, a restaurant owner can't take or misappropriate an employee's tip and split it among other employees.

Zarella said he has spoken with the customer, and he confirmed "it was his intention" to leave the money for his employees.

The customer reportedly confirmed the large tip was not a mistake or typo.

"He wanted them to have it," Zarella said.
