In Japan they get offended if you tip, in their system they price the food at value for what it’s worth and to tip extra is to be insulting.

In Japan they will pay for the your uniform ( if required) your train pass to work, you also have a government pension and health care. Pretty much you only have to pay rent and food

Do people have to pay for work uniforms in any country? If I was ever asked to pay for a work uniform, I won't even go the first day.

I got one uniform and one work shoe allowance when I worked at Tim Hortons in Canada. Anything extra we had to pay for/buy ourselves.

I was given the name of a shoe retailer to use if I wanted a discount when buying my own nonslip shoes.

Damn, they give you one shoe and make you pay for the other shoe.
