There is an active discussion on craigs list rant/rave section on tipping. I have posted here to continue the conversation because idiots keep flagging, well you cant flag here!

My opinion is below:

I the customer am not the problem.....dont you see the major
corporations and CEOs are making millions....and they have tricked you and "guilted" me into believing that tipping is the way it should be.

You should make the minimum wage at least....plus any tips you make
should be tax free! Its a GIFT.....you need to unionize so you can have
rights and actually have enough money to pay bills, get healthcare, buy
gas, and go to school.

Dont be fooled by the man anymore.....you are being cheated!

Just imagine how much better your life would be is you made the
mandatory minimum wage and got to take home tips tax free. The rich
want you to stay poor.....thats who is hurting you and your family..
..The greedy rich.The greedy owners who drive the best cars, have
spoiled kids, and live high on the hog!

Black folks are the worst tippers ever! I myself am black (I don't believe in the Afro/African-American term) and I am ashamed of my people! One of my friends delivers for a pizza franchise and says blacks rarely tip, and when they do it's only a dollar and two dollars is a BIG tip! But she says while white people usually tip 4 or 5 dollars.

In case anyone is wondering, blacks don't tip black servers any better than white servers, so it's NOT a racial issue.

The industry 'standard' is to tip 15% of the ticket in a restaurant. If everyone would tip that percentage, I could get through college with NO student loan debt!

If we as black folks want to be respected, one way to achieve that is to be known for TIPPING MORE THAN WHITES! Please spread the word.... tip your servers and pizza deliveries better!

Duh, he's saying that they should be required to pay minimum wage. And they only pay $2.13 an hour.
