So I started a new job last week at a new restaurant & this week I noticed my boss has been cutting my hours at work & sending me home early! I'm the only one he's doing this too! I was supposed to have done 36 hours this week & so far I've done 6 or 7 hours :( I know for a fact that I'm a hard worker & I do my job fantasticly. But I don't know why he's doing this to me! The restaurant is always busy & in the middle of lunch rush or dinner rush he calls the restaurant & tells the my shift leader to cuts me after 2 hours even tho she needs me during the rush! Everyone else even the lazy people we have on staff work all their hours, they never get cut! I'm also the only black person on staff! What should I do!

Yeah thats typical of the food industry.
I worked as a waiter too and they did the same to me. They only need you when its busy but dont wanna pay you more then they need to.
I say stand up for yourself, bring it up to your boss and quit if it continues.0

I think your boss is slowly cutting your hours as a way of preparing to let you go.
If I were you the most sensible thing to do would be to endure this for the time being but actively look for another job on your days off.
You deserve to work in an environment where you feel comfortable.0
