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

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

This. The normalization of passing on wages to the will of the customer is incorrect. Still, I tip.

You got ripped off. Dick's burgers in Seattle pays 19 starting and their basic burgers are like less than $4. A restaurant I worked at through college upped its wage from 12 to 16 and they didn't up their prices at all either. Probably should have moved on when uou saw the prices.
