The tip system is so dumb. Waiters shouldn't have to depend on tips, tips should be a nice but unnecessary boost for good service. It's all twisted around.

What servers DON’T want is to be hourly drones that make the same amount every week, regardless of how hard they work or don’t. That’s what keeps people in hospitality, the terror of fixed (low) pay, not being able to work & make more when you need it. But, I’d say that problem needs to be addressed in every industry. Every job should offer some profit sharing bonuses. Employees should be included, incentivized & have more share of the value they create. I’m Japan, employees get 2 bonuses a year based on their employers profits. Usually, each bonus is equal to 2-3 months salary. So, imho, servers shouldn’t be the only people fearful of making the same all the time, everyone should want better. Corporations can do this.
