Its weird to me that America is one of the only countries (if not, the only) where servers rely
But at the same time, if they told me “you’re gonna be getting paid minimum wage and you won’t get tips anymore” I would 100% quit and I think most servers/bartenders would do the same cause minimum wage won’t cut it lol
We had this discussion some time ago, I think honestly that’s better to stop the tipping culture since it depends on generosity of customers and doesn’t really guarantee a decent wage for every worker. I think, in parallel, it has to be risen up the minimum wage, I sincerely don’t know how much it is and if it’s enough to make a living.
You’re now paid less than 5 dollars per hour a day, here in Italy only people working in the country fields achieve so poor wage, I think it’s very unequal to rely only on tipping hoping there’s a lot of customers and the majority of them choose the highest tip to integrate your wage.
