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”

In Denmark a McDonalds worker earns 22 USD per hour, 5 weeks paid holiday and paid parental leave from the beginning. So it is possible!

In Denmark you also doesn't pay a fortune just to see the doctor which counts for something 😁
