Mu Shu? Screw You, We're Gettin' Porked!

5/12/2008 8:39 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The hired help at Mr. Chow's L.A. restaurant claim the restaurant eats its own.

According to the court papers filed at LA's Superior Court this afternoon, the Chow-lings claim the big bosses have pilfered their tips, shortchanged them on OT and wouldn't even let them chow down during lunch.

So check this out. The help claims Chow kept the ship tighter than a shrimp dumpling -- docking them every time they screwed up. Looks like Chow is the ultimate micro-manager, and we're not just talking height. Cue rim shot.

restaurant management    

RESTAURANTS LAWS HAVE CHANGED OVER THE LAST YEARS. SOME GOOD FOR EMPLOYEES AND SOME FOR THE OWNERS (BUT ALWAYS GOOD FOR THE IRS) YUK! . CHOW HAS BROKEN MANY OF THE LAWS. HE NEEDS SOMEONE WHO HAS KEPT UP WITH THEM, TO PROTECT HIM FROM THIS IN THE FUTURE. TO MICRO MANAGE HIS OWN RESTAURANT SHOWS THAT HE IS NOT EDUCATED IN THE NEW RULES. GET PROFESSIONAL HELP OR KEEP GETTING SUED YOU DUMB ASS!!!!

Why should the servers get any money at all? Mr. Chow should get all the money.
The servers should work there for free just for the privilege of seeing famous
Hollywood stars. The people who work in the kitchen should work for 1/2 price and
on their breaks they could look out the kitchen windows at the stars.
