Tipping used to be considered bribery, and was generally frowned upon. A lot of servers even refused to accept tips for that reason. Can't we go back to that and just pay servers a decent wage? It is the duty of the employer to ensure the employees are paid a decent wage, and any workplace that can't do that should not be in business. Unionize! They can replace some of us but they can't replace us all, so if we stick together then the power is in our hands

They don't want to replace the system though because in actuality servers tend to make a ton of money when they're good but they like to throw a fit if someone doesn't pay them well as if they're not actively supporting a system that screws them. Seriously I quit tipping jobs because I didn't make any, but every single person I've met that works them LOVES them souly because of the money and will suck the systems dick if you say it's bad and should be replaced but will simultaneously will bitch up a storm and shit talk an entire table in the back if their tip sucks. How about you just work a job that doesn't fucking tip then, oh wait you don't want to.

Yes, this is where it's divided. The people from tales from a server are so pro tip, because SOME of them make great money. Seems like many of the others just get screwed.
