    Statistically, older people tip less than younger people. Weird, huh.

    Put yourself in their shoes just once and come back with that logic.

    Sure, i don't have to tip and i don't if the service is atrocious but tipping is customary in america and if i don't tip... they don't get paid to work. It's basically slave labor at that point.

    Plus, if you go back to said restaurant or order pizza from that joint again and are a stingy customer... you aren't gonna be getting good food or service. That's a fact

    I only tip if the service was exceptional, but I don't live in a joke country like the US, so it isn't necessary.

    I wouldn't work for someone if they don't pay me enough.

    Ok? So they lose customers. Sounds like the owners problem and not mine.

    So you'd starve then. Got it. The world is a cruel place and it isn't easy out there for some people. You obviously have it easy with a "i won't work" entitled attitude, but if some people don't work THEY DON'T EAT. or their kids don't eat. Or they can't pay the rent. etc etc

    You think anyone wants to go work as a waiter and get crapped on all day for minimum tips? Come on

    We don't all live in Sweden where our government pays for us to exist.

    No, I'd find work that pays what I think is enough.

    As long as you make argument for mandatory tipping you ARE standing up for the system.

    It is NEVER EVER the customer's responsability to pay the salery of the worker. That responsability falls to the employer. ALWAYS!

    If you are under paid, demand a raise or quit the job; if you do neither, keep your mouth shut!

    You are right, but not tipping is not "fighting the man" or what ever you want to call it, it is simply screwing wait staff out of money. You can fight that issue through legislation if you want, but just flat out not tipping for some ideological reason regarding that issue just harms that employee and does nothing else at all.

    You need a bit more perspective if I’m being honest. Not insulting you but you need to learn to put yourself in others shoes

    There aren’t a lot of great jobs for uneducated people and if delivering food can keep their kids fed through tips who are we to judge their situation?

    You should be thankful that you have the entitled life where you can say “I’ll pick and choose my jobs based on my demands” and not “I need money tomorrow or my kid doesn’t eat”

    Have some empathy for goodness sake. Or if you can’t afford to tip, maybe you should deliver too?

    Screwing them out of money? They have no right to your money.

    A labor union? Why that’s a great idea I’m sure no one in American history tried that before. Once again you lack perspective.

    I’m not arguing about the morality of the system; I’m just saying the system as it is I’m not too cheap to top. If you’re too cheap to tip, maybe you should be the one waiting

    Yeah they don’t get it. They are either too young or too entitled. They lack real world experience. In America you tip because it’s how the wait staff eats. I hate the law but it’s IMMORAL to not tip them because of fighting the man. If they were the man, they wouldn’t be waiting tables

    You could have looked at where they are from too. Tipping isn't common practice in almost all of Europe, in some areas it is even considered bad manners.

    20k won’t ecen be a house payment in the USA. It won’t ecen get you a good car

    Btw can I say how amazing that is of you? It takes a special person to do what you’re doing and I wish you nothing but the best over there.

    Again, I hate our system at times I wasn’t trying to be like oh it’s so great and I tip because of that. No, I tip despite the awful system it’s built on. Out of empathy for the little guys who are working and delivering food who are under appreciated by the boss. Is that small tip gonna change their lives? Nah but it’s just good Will

    So you don't like pretty much every restaurant in the US than.

    Or just find another job. Also, Sweden does not pay you to exist. If you straved they might feed you and they might put a roof over your head but not much more than that. You know, a bit like in pretty much every country in the west.

    But again, find a better job.
