The fact that US service workers depend on tips is wrong. Employers should pay them a living wage.

Yep. It's on the servers boss if they're not getting a livable wage.

Tipping should be illegal, and I say that as someone who relies on tips.

You see more and more fast food places asking for tips. Right now it’s fun and dandy while they get paid minimum or more. But the fast food pay enjoyment gonna change real fast when fast food restaurants get the legal slip to pay less than minimum cuz “tips are income and will justify it”

Yeah a while back I used to work at Sonic, and one day corporate decided all the carhops were gonna start getting tip wage. Luckily I was a manager by then, but considering most folks don’t know you should tip at Sonic it was a certain kind of hell for the folks who worked with me.

luckly things seem to be going more towards if the company doesn't want to pay for workers they don't get workers in recentt imes.
