Right?? Like i dont understand the people who shame others for eating out and leaving a lousy (or no) tip. I get that it's the employees way of making $ but it's such an absurd system. If i lived in America i wouldn't bother going to a restaurant at all. The customer shouldn't be responsible for giving the employee a living wage.

I think most people commenting that way have been raised to believe this type of tipping culture is normal. Traveling to the States from a foreign country had me shocked. This is NOT normal. This is ABNORMAL and not typical of tipping experiences elsewhere in the world. We shouldn't shame other people struggling just because corporations are greedy, rich assholes. Make no mistake - corporations are doing this because they can. Not because they have to. They've convinced people that it's acceptable and "the only way" they can operate.

Nope, it’s just a fact that people have to tip until the system changes, and fucking over your server isn’t going to fix things.

They don't though. Maybe servers should refuse to work for employers who don't want to pay a decent wage.

You seem to think waitstaff shouldn’t get to eat until after the revolution, good luck with that.
