Should tipped workers be paid a fixed wage instead ?
Waiters will still get paid for their work no matter the tip
Some people don't tip just because they don't like you or they don't feel like it
Even if they got a really good service
Income equality for entire staff
Con(against the idea)
Improved quality of service because of competitive wages
The restaurant industry will be destroyed because they depend on the tips to determine the star it will have.
Restaurant owners prefer paying waiting staff much lower than the minimum wage
Waiters like that they can get a lot of money easily
Customers tip more for better service
They also get a percentage of the tips(could be a lot,could be a little,why not take the chance?
They save money and make some In the process
Busser(16) at fancy restaurant
Waiters would make several hundred a night on a good day just by serving
On a bad day no one got anything
My 1% would net me 50-80 a night just by cleaning
Didn't hate the money but saw the unfairness in equality
Crew members would try selling stuff to us servers to get by
(Tamales,trinkets,cutting yards,2nd job)
Waiting staff mostly worried about shopping and making enough for their expensive car payments
The crew in the back that made everything, paid minimum wage only
Will waiters actually benefit in the long run?
Will it effect the quality service?
How will the food prices change
