As a frequent visitor to the USA I find the tipping system bizarre. Why not pay staff a living wage. I have given a 10% tip in a diner and if looks from the waitress could kill, i would be dead, They expect a $5 dollar tip on a meal that costs $10 dollars ffs. My American friends say "but you should pay for good service". So you have to bribe the waitress not to spill the soup in your lap ?

I guess so.


I don't go to Timmy's anyhow. The local Timmy's don't have non-dairy milk/creamer options. If I want plain coffee I just make my own. If I want a latte I go to Starbucks.

There are so many things in that article I find appalling - I have no idea where to start.

Which will cost you 2-3 times what TH charges......


Mandatory tip? Just raise employee pay.


I prefer to make my own coffee which I make for cents and not dollars.

Me too. Even better is the free coffee I get at work.


Here's an idea! How about they just pay their workers a living wage?

You want them to get a living wage, but you don't want to tip them extra? hmmmmmm


If workers recieve a living wage from their employer, then they don't have to rely on tips.

It should not be the customers job to make up for the employers lack of interest in providing proper compensation to their employees for their hard work.


If the employer raises the price, the customer still pays it.

Also, if the employee has other, higher job offers, they should take those. It is not an employers job to overpay an employee because they do not have adequate skills.

The employer has obviously made the employee their most lucrative offer, or the employee would not be working there.

You know how it works in America when you go out to eat. If you're not going to tip, stay home.

@Dyl1983 And a Canadian one at that. But here in this thread we've gone a different direction.
