While taxes are part of it you should also consider that they get the cash now instead of later so they can spend it on whatever they need to instead of waiting for a paycheck.

Thread started off strong, wandered some, but came back strong with the pocket lint and stamps. If unknown, would read again. But definitely a rental and not a keeper for the shelf. 6 of 10.

Cash tip or credit tip it doesn't matter. They get the tip at the end of the night no matter what. At least I did when I waited tables in college. The only difference was credit card tips were automatically counted on declaration forms, while cash wasn't

We kept our own bank of money on us, if people paid in cash, we kept it all on us until the end of the night. At the end a printout would tell us how much cash we have to turn in based on the amount of people that paid in cash less credit tips. If not enough people paid in cash to cover your tips, the manager just paid it out to you.

Not all places work that way. Some places will even charge the waiter the VIG for the tip if a credit card is used. Not to mention I have heard of managers not properly distributing credit card tips and keeping a portion for themselves.

I always worry about that when I order delivery online. I'll normally give another dollar cash tip if they get there fast and get all the way up to my apartment.

That sucks, but I'm not going to carry around cash for the sole purpose of tipping servers. I wish we would move away from this 'guaranteed tip' thing we have going on. Pay your damn waiters a living wage, and let me tip them if they do a good job.

As mentioned, that sucks, but I'm not stopping at the ATM every time I go out to eat.

It's typically a $100+ affair every time we go out to eat.

This is what pisses me off so much about the American "tip" system. Why the hell should I be involved in the waiter's financial issues? I go to a restaurant to eat. I don't want to think about what the staff gets paid, it's not my problem.

"I don't want to pay my staff a living wage, so I'll dump the moral responsibility off on the customer!"

I need to move back to Japan.

Take me with you!

I agree 150% I cant stand determining what the service is worth, I just want my food.

One of my summer jobs is wage + tip based. Because most people dont realize that it is a tip based job, I can go weeks without a tip, or I can get a few hundred in a day or two. I feel that restaurants should be set up this way instead of the expected tip that is demanded by todays society.

A tip is supposed to be extra for doing a good job. In the US it's given to make sure that the server actually makes minimum wage, since the restaurant probably pays them $3/hour.

I don't get tips... Tipping is what keeps them in need of tips.

If no one tipped the business would just raise prices and include it in their pay, they would have to.

Since everyone seems to be out of eggplants, here is a link to a Freakonomics podcast on tipping. I really liked their books and usually enjoy these podcasts.
