I always tip. That said, I do not know why the government let's the restaurants get away with this practice of $2 per hour. If I'm paying $25 for a steak dinner, surely they can pay the staff what they are worth. But the flip side, the service would go downhill. The truly good ones would still shine. But the average ones would no longer care. I think the solution would to pay them a decent wage, and every customer could give a rating instead of a tip. The higher your rating, the more money you make. The lower, you make much less.

I always tip if I've received good customer service from restaurant personnel. Maybe if you feel as you do and you're on your feet, as you say, for 12 hours a day, you should change jobs, work in a restaurant, then you will realise why they deserve their tips. You buy the food from the owners of the restaurant not the waiting staff.

I understand your situation and it stinks that you only make minimum wage. However, it is not fair to the other struggling waiters and waitresses if you don't tip them. That is the custom in our country. So if you are looking for someone to say it is okay not to tip, you won't find me saying that. It is not okay. i am not in the restaurant business btw

If you are not going to tip I'd suggest never going to the same restaurant twice unless you enjoy bodily fluids in your food/drink. If the servers were paid minimum wage then the food prices would be higher to pay for the servers. By allowing tipping you can control how much you want to compensate the servers. If you don't want to tip I suggest eating at McDonalds... And heck if I made minimum wage McDonalds would be a rare special treat anyways.

I only tip if the service was brilliant. It's there job to do what they do and I will only give them extra if I feel they go the extra mile. Don't ever feel pressured into thinking you have to tip. A lot of places also already include an extra 7% charge as a tip so always check.

Eddy, in the UK it's not required to tip because waiters and waitresses are paid a proper wage. In the USA, however, you should add at least 15% to the cost of your meal, because waiters and waitresses there depend on tips to increase their minimum pay to a decent level. Here in the UK, I leave a tip only if the person serving me has been exceptionally good at his or her job.

waiters and others who get tips are actually earning SUB MINIMUM wage--many states allow them to be paid HALF the going minimum wage rate for that state--so they LIVE on their tips because in reality it is part of their base income.

It's not o.k. not to tip unless your server gives you a reason. As you know they don't get very much by the hour from the resturaunt. You are expected to pay them for their service. If they are don't give you good service then you may have a reason not to tip them. You have put yourself in a bad situation if you go back to resturaunts where you never tip. Don't expect good service at all as they will surely remember you. You really think that you are supporting the resturaunt? Think whatever you want. You are inviting bad service.

If you are in North America, you should tip if you eat out. Most servers have a tipout of some sort, so if you don't tip, they have to pay out of pocket to the kitchen, hostess, bartender etc for your meal.
