In-N-Out burgers might be delicious, but they’re burning the hell outta their employees … according to one worker who’s pissed about his uniform — ’cause he had to pay for it.
Tom Piplack toiled at an In-N-Out branch in Southern California between February 2016 and November 2018, and like all employees at the burger joint … had to rock the all white pants and black shoes. He’s not complaining about the fashion, it’s the cost that’s got him fired up.
In a lawsuit, obtained by TMZ, Piplack says most In-N-Out workers are paid “near minimum wage” and forcing them to buy their uniform “pushes their wages below the legal minimum.”
He isn’t disclosing how much he paid … it’s more about the principal of the matter for him.
Piplack says wants the court to make In-N-Out pay fines for violating Cali labor laws — and then he wants that money to be distributed to all employees as reimbursement for the uniform expenses. We’ve reached out to In-N-Out … no word back yet.
You could say Piplack is pulling a Robin Hood, but he also wants the burger giant to cover his attorneys fees.
Robin Hood didn’t have no stinkin’ lawyers.
