Humorous video looks at the history of tipping in the USA and makes a good argument for scrapping the habit
Most cafe, restaurant and fast food workers in the USA are paid less than the minimum wage, and rely heavily on tips to supplement their basic incomes. In this video, Youtube Channel College Humor makes a great case for why tipping is a waste of time, how good service bears no relation to a good tip, and how it all started in the first place.
We recently discussed the restaurant that abandoned tipping to pay their staff higher wages.
Would you prefer to pay higher prices for your meals, ensuring that staff get paid what they deserve without the stress of doing the math every time someone brings you a check? If you’re outside the USA, what’s the system in your own country, and does it work well? Let us know in the comments.
