That's like me walking into a restaurant and being charged a fee for the lights being on, a fee for air conditioning and then the cost of food. No. All costs and fees should be wrapped up in the price of the meal. If you decide to work for a business that doesn't respect you enough to make your pay a requirement, than that's your choice. 

I actually don't even care about tipping or mind, but this attitude that we are expected to make up for bad business practices on the part of the employer is ridiculous. 

If people are working as servers because it's flexible, they can call a nursing home and wipe ass for a flat $7.50 an hour with just as much, if not more flexibility. 

As far as a "percentage" of the meal. I dont agree with having to pay set percentages. I think $5-$15.00 is fair for tipping. You are making well over minimum wage with that. If I buy a $200.00 plate I'm not paying you $50.00 for bringing it. 


This is how the 1% feel about you.....but continue.

lol...ok so yeah....we are back to what the real deal holyfield sentiment is for most non tippers...which is...f*ck them and their shytty azz slave pay...let them eat cake!

my commentary was mainly aimed toward those claiming to actually give a damn about the workers being paid fairly and profits only being funneled to corps.

If you don't want to tip, keep your ass at home and make your own damn food. It's not that hard. It's cheaper anyway.

this thread is a good example at why it's easier said than done when getting others to accept and understand cultures outside of their own, that extends to any type of acceptance really.
