This one's on the house.

Workers at a Michigan pancake restaurant decided to work a day for free.

It was their way of helping Mr. B's Pancake House and owner Dave Barham.

Business has slowed lately, so lead server Mary VanDam asked her fellow employees if would work a day without pay.

Everyone from cooks to busboys, 17 people in all, didn't get paid for the day shift last Sunday.

They worked for tips only.

Many customers left a little more on the table when they heard about what Mr. B's workers were doing.

The tips were divided equally and each of the restaurant workers took home 51 bucks.
