The US tipping culture is toxic as hell. Shaming people for eating out on a budget because an entire industry has convinced workers it's OK to be paid next to nothing? Ridiculous. People deserve living wages with tips viewed as an added gratuity or bonus for good service.

Until things change in the USA, this is the way it is. And people are well aware that wait staff make $2/hr plus tips. So if someone can’t afford to tip - they should get takeout or not patronize restaurants at all. They knowingly arrived to the restaurant and stiffed

This is a blatant lie most states do not have a 2$ tip wage
