I usually tip 20%. 10-15% if they weren't great, 25-30% if they were great.

I mean these waitress/waiters are making at least minimum wage PLUS tips. This is almost $20-40 per hour. How is that even fair? Thats a very very good wage for someone without a college education and doing some trifling work.

Other jobs like CPAs or attorneys do not get tipped. In fact, with these occupations, people try to take advantage of them and demand free consultations before even signing a retainer with them

No other occupation requires tips, but why restaurants? If those waiters/waitress feel they are underpaid, they can always get another job.

People who work much harder jobs don't even make $20 per hour.
I am sure this has been pointed out, but minimum wage doesnt apply to servers. There is a difference minimum wage for them, which I think varies by state. Basically, they have to earn minimum wage INCLUDING their tips.

So why should they be entitled to a tip? When they are simply doing their job.

If they don't like the wage of being a waitress, they can get another one.

Like some restaurants that charge over 30 dollars a person, the amount of tips become outrageous very easily when there are a party of 5 or more. At this point, charge over 30 a person, the restaurant can easily give their waitresses a higher wage.
again, no they dont. Server minimum wage is something like 2.50 per hour in the states I am familiar with.


Now, the real tip scam is bartenders. Supposed to be a buck a drink? What a rip off.

California you get $8 minimum wage even if you are a waitress.

Don't get me started with bartenders.

They want tips for popping a bottle for me.

Restaurants are some of the riskiest businesses out there and profit margins are incredibly thin with this system of tippin already in place.....if they had to pay their waiters/waitresses 16-20$/hr so a snotty nosed fugazzy like you would stop bitching, forget about it.

Best advice for you is to stay at home and only interact with the world via the Internet, where your distorted view of reality can remain reinforced by other pre teens agreeing with your simple and clueless ideas.

This.

Generally the costs of food, employment, and overhead account for ~70% of most restaurants' gross in the industry. Just thought people should know that since they clearly don't.

BUT here's a major news flash for you since you don't seem to have comprehended it yet: servers get paid about half minimum wage across the states and are expected to make up the rest by tips. the numbers may vary, but that's the basic situation across this land.


hopefully one of these days you'll get off of your bratty little ass and recognise simple reality. in the meantime, your views and the 'stats' you've posted in this thread are quite, quite pathetic.

I make my own money and think you are coming off like a cheap, miserable prick who doesn't know what the hell you are talking about. I always tip well and never even worked as a waiter though I do know enough about the food biz to know they get shit on constantly and don't get paid what they deserve in most cases. You're just a cheap shit who is desperately trying to justify being a cheap shit so you don't feel like the asshole you are behaving as.

Can someone even survive on their own in a state as exspensive as Cali only making minimum wage? Do we expect high school kids who live with their parents to supply the demand for all these service jobs?

And in the mean time your stats are completely wrong. Waiters and waitresses make minimum wage in Cali.

Tell that to the subway lady who's serving you food. Ask them how much tips THEY are making.

So a high class expensive restaurant, charging over 50 dollars a plate gets to charge a MANDATORY 18% gratuity? give me a break. No other service ANYWHERE do this.

Go ask your grocery bagger or the cashier how much they are making and how much tips they are getting.

Those are shittier jobs dipshit, go ask how much forced labor workers in China make...Go ask how much starving nomadic tribes in Africa make in tips....go ask how much a lifer in peneteniary makes in tips in the laundry room, go ask how much a 14 year old Russian girl forced into sexual slavery makes in tips, you flagrant imbecile...

You don't get the same service from waiting in line and doing your own groceries, and it's also not as satisfying as a formal outting, that's why they don't make tips...

Any other fool proof arguments to excuse your behaviour as a piece of shiiit greedy scum broke biitch?
