For the people that don't tip their servers.... and those that do.

Let's say the government rules that.....

  • Food service establishments can no longer pay servers below minimum wage nor can they require servers to pay tip pool that goes to help subsidize the salary of non-tipped employees.

 

  • Severs are no longer to have to claim at least 8% of their total food and beverage sales. They only have to claim the actual tips earned.

 

  • Tipping is no longer a social norm. Servers may accept gratuities, but food service establishments may not add gratuity to patron's bills nor can they depend on the customer to pay the severs' wages. Tipping is no longer expected but can be given if the patron feels the server went above and beyond the expectations of service.

In order to abide by the new law, many food service establishments are forced to raise their prices by 20% to make up for revenue that will now go to higher payroll costs.

Would you still go to your favorite full- service restaurant if the prices were increased by 20%, but you are no longer expected (by the server, the government, and the restaurant) to tip?

Servers here make at least minimum wage so that wouldn't apply here.

 We don't go out often anymore, service sucks in most places, unless it is higher end and the food is nothing compared to what I can make at home.  So I wouldn't care.
