Texas requires that non-exempt employees earn overtime for all hours worked over 40 in a week. As a bus boy, waiter and cook, you would not be exempt and therefore, your employer would be required to pay you overtime. You should report this issue to the TX Department of Labor: so that they can look into this issue for you. You would be entitled to all back-pay for overtime, as well as any future overtime.
