I am under the impression that, if the tips provided over the course of the shift combined with the earned wage does not add up to the area minimum wage, the employer is responsible for paying the difference.

Is there a waiter or waitress among us who can either validate or invalidate that?

It's the restaurant lobby. They think they'll go out of business if they have to pay their employees a livable wage.

I'm a good tipper but why bag on the "cheapskate" customer and leave the restaurant owner off the hook? That's the real source of the problem.

Like DM I am somewhere we tip for really good service. Admittedly staff usually make minimum wage, which is not the same as a living wage, but at least I don't tip for everything- certainly not at the pub.

There are no problems with tipping people. The problem comes when you are FORCED to tip or it forms the basic part of the end bill.

"restaurants are permitted to bypass the federal minimum wage requirements."

Incorrect. Tips are part of wage. If you're not making significantly more than minimum wage on tips, then you're in the wrong profession.

I base tips on service. If they are a sh*t server that disappears for long periods of time (like 20-30 mins!) then the tip will reflect that. Very rarely does this happen but just because you are a server doesn't mean you deserve a tip. You have to work to earn that tip. And we all know what kind of server I am talking about.

This is really a non-issue for me, because I live in Europe. But you make a poor argument, unless you want your food with a side of spit. And that crappy website doesn't help much either.

Amen to this! If you cheap bastards don't want to tip, keep your cheap ass at home.

They aren't forced to do anything. If you're complaining about how they're forced to NOT mandate money from someone else then you have a problem.

Obviously this only applies to the USA. Tipping is generally considered optional in the rest of the world.

20% minimum -- unless the only time you've ever eaten at Denny's they charge you $6.00 for a glass of orange juice.
