Please rep your moderators.
"i make my living off of tips! without it i don't make minumum wage."
solution: pay wait staff, bartenders, etc, minimum wage. my opinion.
i must spread my seed around before seeding moderator gilaet again.
I say tip? I'll give you the whole thing honey.
waiting tables is their job. pay them for their job...minimum wage. it ain't hard to wait tables.
i wouldn't tip a surgeon for doing a good surgery an they work a hell of a lot harder and know a lot more than waiters.
I have learned that if you tip the staff early and often you get better service.
I actually wish more jobs were tip based. So many bad workers out there.
but fuck that mindset. it's their job. are you allowed to give shittier service if your patrons/customers/clients/patients don't give you EXTRA money for doing your job? fuck no. fuck wait staff and bartenders.
they'd still be bad workers. only then they'd be bad workers who are angry because they think you fucked them over by not tipping them for shitty work they do.
Beat me to it.
I do feel they should be paid more by their employers but we should have the option to give them something extra if they do a good job. If they all made the same pay the service would suck.
from an article: "why your bartender hates you":
9. Anything less than 20 percent is blasphemy.
Sorry, kids. This isnâ€™t an ego thing; this is a New York thing. Most service industry workers make about $2.13 an hour, far below minimum wage. My livelihood is my tip. And I know without a doubt, I never give service that is worth less than 20 percent. I always find it funny to hear these guys who work for Morgan Stanley or Barclays or UBS or Bank of America talk about throwing money around, but when a $153 bill is dropped, everyone gets real quiet. I was an English major who was terrible at math, and somehow even I know that $20 on anything more than $120 is an insult. Itâ€™s ironic that those who deal with money on a daily basis are the ones who seem the most confused when it comes to adding a tip. You arenâ€™t curing cancer or solving the debt crisis here, bro. Youâ€™re leaving a 20 percent tip on a check, and Iâ€™m pretty sure your phone even has a calculator. Maybe that explains the financial crisis of the last four years. If you canâ€™t figure out 20 percent of 173, you probably shouldnâ€™t be handling millions of dollars a day for other people. Or if youâ€™re just too cheap to leave an adequate tip, maybe you should just stay home. Do you work for free? No? Okay cool because neither do I.
It's a great deal for the employers. Pay slave wages, make the patrons make up the difference.
it's just fucking ridiculous. just pay the uneducated monkeys what they're worth: minumum wage.
