There is only one thing wrong with this bill. the percentage needs to drop to 15 percent instead of 20 percent.

Certainly you are entitled to your opinion and that's what these public forums are for - lively debate. But if you had ever worked in food service like I do you would not be in favor of lowering the tip percentage from 20 to 15. Waitresses like me make less than minimum wage and we depend on tips to be able to support ourselves. Granted, some servers do a crummy job but when you receive good service, you should not hesitate to lay out 20% for a job well done.

Where in this whole thing did I mention Food services industry? The average tip is somewhere around 15 percent and not 20 percent according to Annie's Mail box unless there are more than seven people being served at the same table.
But you are off the subject which is recall of the boards of education which is more important at this time. The City of El Paso has a recall of less than 10 percent per the last election of the person being recalled and not the entire election.

Actually, I think she's right. I waitressed when I was in college and you make minimum wage. When people don't tip or under-tip it makes things really hard. Some end up working for less than minimum wage when people stiff them so I urge everyone to give 20% unless the server is incompetent.
