        The tip is suppose to be a gift. The fact that government got involved in tipping by making a tip assumption that people will get enough of these little gifts to make up for the less than minimum wage means that it's no longer a gift but the part of the wage and therefore should go under the tax laws of the state. Expecting it to come but not taxing it means that some people are getting tax free dollars, waiters at high end places that cater to super rich get that money and businesses get away with paying less than minimum wage but in reality their customers pick up the wage bill for them.
        I know most bars and restaurants waiters won't make a fortune and in fact will struggle as soon as the economy is tight so they really need the protection of minimum wage but at the excuse of them some businesses are making huge tax free money, and it's money that should be taxed because if you're selling 10k worth bottles of vine or champagne or whatever and then your guests tip according to the percentage of the bill you can afford to pay minimum wages and the state should tax that over the top tip too. Yes there are places that sell that, in Vegas there is a hotel with a restaurant where some bottles of vine or Champagne or whatever cost around million dollars. It's for super rich to flash their wealth but the fact is such places do exist, money is thrown around and the tax is avoided.

                0:27 I don't think tipping is a thing in Japan. The Japanese are culturally expected to work their ass off just because. That's why dying from overworking is such a problem there.

                    It baffles me y’all still aren’t tipping in 2019 lmao. People who work off tips, especially in the restaurant industry usually have to tip out the bar and or support staff. Last night my coworker served a party of 15 for two hours well into closing time so he had to tip out on his 1000 plus sales before he cashed them out. Once he did he got a whopping 6 dollars from them total. Not sure what their sales were but the shit adds up. He probably lost about 25-30 bucks. The fact that it’s based on sales is just an indication of the appropriate amount but you still put 0 because it’s always based on their service right lol. If you think you’re...powerful? For sticking it to the man and not tipping because you think businesses should pay their employees above minimum wage then by all means, do something to change it! But 1. I’m sure that even after the fact, you still wouldn’t tip anyone based on good service and 2. I’m making too much money from my 20-50% tips to be worried about the few broke assholes that stiff me so actually never mind do not change a thing, we’re doing just fine 💃🏾

                              I like to apply the rule of universality, why should one group of workers get tipped while the other doesn't? You wouldn't pay a tip for all those different workers that don't deal directly with customer sales so why treat them any different?

                                                    The BS about this is legally by law in Canada you have to make minimum wage thus I no longer tip and I think that should be common practise for Canadian's if you rely so heavily on tipping and hate when you dont get tipped that sounds like a you problem time to find a new job/career.

                                                                        Not restaurant owners greed now.

And that has nothing to do with George Washington or Canada anything else before prohibition. It is a remanent from 1919.

                                                                        Pre-prohibition front of house of restaurants made money with booze, back of house made money with food and the proprietor payed everyone to do their jobs.

                                                                        During prohibition restaurant proprietors couldn’t make money on booze. But, guests not wanting to serve themselves were willing to pay people T.I.P.S.; To Insure Proper Service. Which made serving people food and pouring people drinks a viable option for employment again.

                                                                        Fast forward 14 years (from prohibitions start) the restaurant industry had found a way to live breath and flourish even with the government quashing half their income.
                                                                        But it came with an added tipping culture that we have thrived on.

                                                                        I’m Sorry that that’s how it is now, but do you really want to kill our way of lives because you don’t want to kick out an extra couple nickels?
