Tipping 50%

Title (Dublin Core)

Tipping 50%

Description (Dublin Core)

High-end food servers rejoiced when this article hit. The back of the house food staff and ma-and-pa restaurant servers did not. Why? Because prep cooks, line cooks, bussers, barbacks, dishwashers, and everyone who makes a restaurant run don't get tips. In some cities and states it's illegal to pay tips to the back of the house. Back of the house gets paid minimum wage while some waiters can make hundreds of dollars in tips a night. As for ma-and-pa restaurants, waiters still make more then back-of-the-house but 50% tips would make food unaffordable for their customers leading to no tips at all. This article means well but requiring 50% tips of customers would only further hurt the food industry.
