I believe where i live the standard that society has come to set is about 15% of the total bill. I have never waited tables or anythign, but i think that 15% is a lot of money.
also do people working in these positions make less than minimum wage? or do they just make tips?

I try to avoid going anywhere I might be expected to give tips. I'm poor myself but I hate making up for employers who pay low wages.1
