I think you need to do some research about wages before you speak. Waiters Wages are lower because they are exposed to A LOT of cash in the forms of TIPS.
Secondly, in order for a person to be paid on commission they need to be a key employee (I know what all of you are thinking "but they cut the grass, they are key") which means that they have to be a decision maker i.e.: manager, crew leader, partner, sales, etc. You may offer additional money (after you pay at least minimum wage of course) in the forms of bonuses which could and in many cases will increase the productivity and also probably reduce the frequency at which the "can I have a raise question" is asked because they are in charge of making more money for themselves.
