Question about massachusetts minimum wage for waitress & credit card tip taxes

hi all

questions: what is the minimum wage for waitresses in MA these days? its been a while for me, so im out of the loop. a friend of mine works 40+ hours a week at a cafe here and her paycheck is $20.

also, she told me a story today that i dont remember at all happening in my day - i dont know if things are different now or if she is getting ripped off. there are 2 waitresses on, and for example today there was $180 in CC tips. they pool tips, and the owner taxed them EACH for the $180. i dont remember at all being taxed on my CC tips, and even if things have changed - shouldnt they be taxed on $90 each?

i dont know...like i said i could so be out of the touch with all this stuff but just want to make sure friend isnt getting the shaft. the owner IS a jerk so nothing would shock me.
