Prospect Heights Bar Paid Bartender No Wages, Just Tips: Lawsuit

A popular local bar is being accused of violating labor laws by paying a bartender only in tips for nearly all of the five years she worked there, according to a new lawsuit.

The lawsuit, filed last week, claims the owners of Soda Bar on Vanderbilt Avenue only paid their bartender, Polina Volkova, when she made less than $100 in tips during a shift.

Most days, that meant not paying any wages at all, according to the suit.
