140,000-plus drivers sent $60m in compensation checks after Amazon 'stole their tips'

When you withhold tips, you are also stealing from the customers who left the tip.

It's not just a contractual matter between the employer and the worker.

If I leave a tip for some reason, it was hard earned money being handed over because it is mine to do with as I see fit. It's no business of the employer to get in the way and whether the employee/contractor consents is irrelevant.

We'd see less of these abusive practices if we recognised them for what they are.
