I think tipping is bullshit. I didn’t even realise how bullshit it was before this year. American restaurants and bars can pay their workers peanuts (2.13usd and hour), as the tips make up for the different between whatever the minimum wage is. I always thought tips were just a bonus. Tipping is basically a way for companies to not have to pay their employees, and shifting the burden of paying someone to the consumer, who may be someone who also works for tips. I wish I could have employees I didn’t need to worry about paying, people would just throw in a few extra bucks every time they buy spares.
