Why would you tip a full waged employee????

I agree with and support fully the need to tip waiters/waitresses because they are not paid a full wage, and their paycheck depends on tips. 


But to tip someone who is paid a full wage...why is it required???

I do tip. 

but it is NOT a requirement. 


Where does it end? 

Are we going to start tipping the cashiers at walmart?


Tipping the gas station attendants?


Where does this end???

In my state wait staff are paid full wage, my state also has the highest minimum wage in the nation, however I do still tip well, because full minimum wage is still not really a liveable wage for anyone. and if they are working their way through school or a single parent I try to support their goals. If the service is bad I do not tip, but it is usually good.

 

Additionally, I tip a few bucks on "to-go" orders even though I am not waited on, that few unexpected bucks has rewarded my family by receiving the royal treatment when we DO dine in. It is a small price to pay for exemplary service, and even at times extra portions or special orders that they traditionally don't have on the menu :)

I agree. I tip for good service.

I tip waiters and waitresses also but not a full waged employee. My son works at BK and he has had people tip him. At Publix they have a no tipping badge on. They take your bags out to your car there.

Im a hair styist. I cant say im paid a full wage. I work on commission. So if i only make $100 in services a day my commission is less than min wage. Other days i can bring in $600. Some days i count on those tips, however i dont expect them

I tip who I feel deserves it. Whether it be a bagger at a store or a seater at a restaurant. Its not about what or how much they make. Its how they treat you and your family.

I tip a full wage employee if there is a tip jar and IF they have given me exceptional service.
