I agree ppl just speak up but in reality they don't so we have this...

I think consumers especially black consumers should speak up be it bad service or a bad product

I think not tipping your waiter/waitress is tacky. But other than that I don't feel like tipping is mandatory for others like the chinese food carryout or chipotles. 

My mil doesn't believe in tipping and she puts servers through the ringer. We have to tell her that she should leave a tip. We went out a few weeks ago and she tipped the waitress $6 and accidentally wrote $6 on the receipt to be taken off her credit card. Once she realized it she told the waitress that she didn't mean to tip her that much($12). I was mortified. That girl looked so embarassed. I just gave my mil $12 and gave the server some extra money. She was a really good server.

i often wonder if people realize how the irs expects  restaurant/bar workers will receive a minimum of a certain % in tips.  and if they don't (and thus don't report it) this causes major problems for the worker because the restaurant/bar will need to add additional tip income to the workers w2 to meet the irs minimum.  in other words, the worker could receive a w2 for more than what they actually received in tips.  so yes, it is expected that service workers in most restaurants/bars will receive tips.

it is a social construct but it's not a bad one.  It's kinda socialist in a way and I'm kinda socialist in a way.

Its not socialist AT ALL IMO....

A socialist would expect the government to enact basic minimal wage laws to ensure that servers are paid a fare and decent living wage.... such that people would not feel obligated to support their wage through tips...

This is nothing but widespread corporate greed... these restaurants are pocketing profits and underpaying staff, and it seems to have been accepted as a norm by society...

I really don't get it

People should be up in arms about the poor wages that these servers are paid, rather than about the customers who don't tip well...
