  • It's this simple really.. why would the customer compensate for the low wages the restaurants are giving their employees?? It's like I'm already giving them money in exchange for the food and service PLUS I have to give the employees additional cash for their trouble. Then I get called cheap or possibly shamed when I go out the restaurant. What kind of fcked up system is that?

  • So you have to pay to get surgery. Yeah. You also get it done faster, better, and you dont have to pay as much in taxes. In Canada and other countries you pay for a specialist anyway so in America it's overall better. People may argue that for people that cant afford it then what are they going to do. I say work harder and longer so you can pay it off. Plus unemployment is at an all time low and minimum wage is higher.

  • Reason Why tripping is like that in USA is because restaurant owners get paid the least in the service industry. Reason For that is The great depression was greater than thought. I dont think tho the servers are complaining though(Espesually female servers), as they earn more than the minimal wage.

  • Yeah the tipping system isnt perfect but the federal minimum wage for servers is like 2.15 an hour compared to 7.25. And 7.25 is not a livable wage in many cities across the country already. So a lot of servers rely on being tipped 20% to pay their own bills, and unless the government forces businesses to suddenly pay their wait staff a live able wage (with respect to the area they live in), then not tipping as a "protest" or "because you dont understand/agree with it" only hurts the servers who took care of you. Serving is not the easiest job, and many servers have families to provide for. Please tip appropriately in America even if you don't agree with it! We need to get legislators to change the laws, but servers shouldnt have to suffer financially because the system is flawed! Choosing not to tip hurts servers more in the short term.

  • This again. "The gov't pays for your healthcare." You pay for your own healthcare in Canada, just like everywhere else. Only you do it a dollar at a time with every single purchase you make your entire life, instead of getting a bill when you get a service. If you like that, cool. I'd like that too. But please, for the love of GOD, STOP saying it's "FREE" or that "the GOV'T pays" because it's not, and it doesn't.

  • I've always hated the fact that somewhere you're expected to pay even for a shitty service just because of some retarded "tradition". I only tip when the service is somehow special and ofc round it out when I just had no issues. Luckily in my country, there's 0 policy on how much you're supposed to tip and stuff like that and people usually tip only when they feel like the tip is well deserved because in my country they don't underpay their workers lol.

  • I'll always remember a dinner in Hawaii with two brits, two aussies, a kiwi and a south african. Service was shocking, very rude waitress - e.g. "Can we see the dessert menu please?" "No". She then raged at us for only tipping 7.5%. I don't get how the Americans think about tipping if the service is horrible... do you do it anyway? What are you paying for then?!

  • Ill say this much, servers and waiters and bartenders make about 100 dollars a night on average. While kitchen staff always make minimum wage. In other words women make allot in the unskilled labor force. Not a problem unless you work as a dishwasher. A necessary job that takes little skill but a giant deal of hard work. Making a dishwasher a magical being that is needed and disregarded at the same time. And cooks will continue to be useless as the menu and their managers continue to make them look like they are amazing, when in reality its a puzzle game that they still mess up while burning everything and making a mess that they never clean. I burn my pan every 10 minutes but the reason ur foods not here is the dishwasher sucks. 5 cooks two managers 10 waiters but 1 guy cleaning up for everyone and playing fetch cause everyone is too important to leave their station needs to get his shit together cause we are over booked and someone spilled wine in the bathroom.. Where is he!!! He is just a dishwasher u would thing he would be happy to have an easy job the ungrateful shit. He claims to be tired and hungry but he cant even keep his cloths clean. Always the first to arrive and the last to leave, also always the first to be fired and the last to be promoted or given a raise. Clean the walk in.. do the prep.. keep the floors clean and the kitchen stalked.. Its not hard! Why do i not have clean pans!! How am i going to burn this sugar sauce that takes 30 minutes for a normal person to clean... Oh well its ten time to go home.. Its ok the dishwasher will clean up he goes home at 2am anyway cause he looks after the bar. At 7.25 an hour working 40 to 60 hours a week.. That can make rent and nothing else. So yeah going to school at the same time is impossible. Let alone eating

  • It gets worse, actually. Some restaurants don't have to make up the difference depending on in which state they're located. Server pay various as well - in red states server pay is often less than $3 an hour. Also, it is courtesy to tip on the bill's original amount before any discount, coupon, or promotional deal. That's why, typically, they show you the pre-discount subtotal on your checks.

  • Unfortunately your video doesn’t cover the actual reason that tipping exists in the parts of the world that just so happens to be the parts of the world that had the emancipation of black slaveryZ It’s not a coincidence. While tipping is so ingrained in many aspects of American commerce today, it actually didn’t originate here: It began in the aristocratic homes of feudal Europe, when lords would give their servants a little extra money when they went above and beyond their duties.When the practice was brought to the United States in the 19th century, the American public was deeply uncomfortable with it. Many saw tipping as undemocratic and therefore un-American. A powerful anti-tipping movement erupted, fueled by the argument that employers, not customers, should be paying workers. But American restaurants and railway companies fought particularly hard to keep tipping, because it meant they didn’t have to pay recently freed black slaves who were now employed by those industries. Europe eventually did away with tipping. But in America, pressure from powerful corporate interests resulted in a two-tiered wage system for tipped and non-tipped workers, institutionalizing a highly racialized system of economic exclusion. Formalized in 1938 in the first minimum wage law as part of the New Deal, this separate and unequal system stated that employers were not obligated to pay a base wage to workers whose minimum wage was met through tips.

  • That reminds me of my work. I work in retail in a hardware store, and I sometimes have to cut some wood on measure, and we have a store policy that if you buy wood from us, we will cut it on measure for free. Some people instantly give me like a 10 euros tip, and I'll be there super glad that they appreciated it, but also flabbergasted lol. It's my job, and I like doing it, and I always try to give best customer service, but after all, it's just my job :p Tipping and getting compliments that people specifically come to our store because basically they're getting treated well and can always ask something and stuff are what make my day :)

  • Visited America. One thing I found out is if the server says 'would you like change' when you pay in cash what they're really saying is 'if you say no I will assume the change is my tip'. So I say no as the change is 30 cents or something because I think what's the point in having that back, I'll just leave a tip on the table and they can keep the 30 cents on top of that. So I leave a big tip on the table thinking I'm being a good tourist. We get up to leave and wave goodbye and thank them. The server scowels, tuts and turns around as they hadn't seen that they have a tip on the table. The duty to pay servers a living wage should be on the company not the customers. Unbelievably backwards system 🤔.

  • In Portugal we don't really have a tip culture, that's a thing that is more usual when tourists started to came here more. But if you want to tip, 2,00 € is enough, if you give more people will be very happy of course. In many places if you eat all your food the feeling is "damn, they still must be hungry, let me ask if they want a little more without paying", just because they are nice people and having a "thanks it was very good and satisfying" is the most important.

  • I just wanna throw in some places that have tip jars, like chipotle or dunkins, pay at or over the standard wages, and tips are split by the staff. Usually the tip jar is just there to leave either the coins or maybe a dollar or two if the service was really good. However some wait staff (not all) like the tip system because when they get cash tips it’s easier to not report it so you end up paying less in taxes at the end of the year, or if you work at a really high end restaurant or in a bar as a bartender, you can end up making hundreds of dollars in tips alone on good nights. I’m not saying it’s better for everyone, and I’m not saying it’s better than what the rest of the world does, but the people who are saying they don’t want to go to the US just because of tipping seem really over dramatic, you can afford to fly across the world but you’re scared of a little math?
