Tip jars are mostly for carry out purchasers. And the tips are intended for the cook or the server who delivers it to u and takes your payment. When we tip we are paying their alary. Servers are below minimum wages So complain to the owners for not paying decent salaries. IRS checks the sales receipts and the server has to add 15% to their taxable income. It is figured on average 15% tip. You are not expected to tip in most of the world, because the servers are paid a decent wage0.

We are the fools that spoil these people into thinking we owe them a tip when in fact THEY SHOULD DO A GOOD JOB FOR THE PRICE THEY CHARGE US.
What is with all of the Tip Jars beside cash registers these days? Is good customer service not part of a job? Why are you expecting something extra when you get an hourly wage?
When I buy coffee at Starbucks there is a tip jar. Then there is Subway, Dairy Queen, the bagel shop, and the list goes on. I know they get paid at least minimum wage.
Now I understand you are supposed to tip the husekeeper at a hotel $5 a night.
When the movers brought my furniture I was told by someone that we should buy them lunch and give them a tip. I know these guys make more than minimum wage! And doing a good job is part of their pay!
I understand the need to tip waitpersons, their pay scale is not the same. They get paid below minimum wage because they get tips. I understand that you tip people like hair stylist, etc. Not sure why, but it has always been that way. Not sure why you tip the doorman, taxi driver...
While I feel that all GOOD service should be validated by financial compensation, I feel that it is the responsibility of the employer to pay their employees a living wage. If the employee feels ripped off, they need to reconsider who to work for. I feel bad for them, but not enough to go broke over it.
Are we expected to tip because someone has a job that doesn't pay well? Every time I tip it is like lowering my hourly wage!
In my opinion, tip waitpersons and others whose hourly rate is below minimum wage because they are adjusted for tip. All other, do your job like I do! Noone tips me!
