They have loss my business. Is it so hard to treat your employees to a fair working condition?

I hope the IRS investigates them as well.

Who keeps track of the money made from tips?

The IRS assumes a certain level of tips, and makes people in traditionally tipped jobs pay withholding on the assumed level.
