So sorry, I'm broke so I can only pay you $77 for my food. You were great though.

Tipping shouldn’t be illegal, it should be bonus. That’s how it’s is pretty much everywhere other than the US - the servers get paid a living wage and if they get tipped it’s either theirs to keep or split amongst all the servers (the former being the better system).

Tipping should be everywhere! Surgeon operated early, tip! Politician passed that law you wanted, bonus! Teacher gave your child an A, have a little cash.

Tips are called bribes in any area of employment where the employees are not horrifically mistreated and underpaid. They have no place in a civilized culture.

even Walmart employees can't accept tips

Don't they actually show new hires how to apply for SNAP as part of their new hire training?

While scheduling them at 39.5 hours a week.

and then cutting your hours the week before you'd be up for review for Full-Time Benefits, so they don't have to give you Full-Time Benefits.

Was a victim of that more than once.
