On Tuesday, the U.S. Supreme Court decided not to hear Applebee’s International Inc.’s appeal in a longstanding labor lawsuit in which more than 5,500 bartenders and servers claim the restaurant chain violated national labor laws by underpaying them. The lawsuit is set to go to trial this September.
