Tipping is NOT corruption.
Never said that it was.
However it would be if if they are not declaring the income to the IRS. Which lets be realistic here, very few waitresses actualy will, its cash in
hand. I have no problem with that, it is what it is.
To be honest I do not really understand what the problem is here.
Small diners, small cafes etc, sure i'll leave some change as a tip, but lets get one thing clear here, in the UK we pay 20% VAT, I would point blank
refuse to pay 20% for a service tax. I have pretty much just doubled the cost of a meal. Restaurants will go out of business very quickly with that
sort of scheme.
Back to the point though, the idea of tipping however is not generated out of some ideal of natural altruism found in people it is created SO
CORPORATIONS CAN CONTINUE TO PAY CRAP WAGES. And to make up the difference, force the already paying customer to make up the rest. Now I do not know
how it works in America, but unless you leave cash on the table, decide to pay by debit card and add a service tax THE SERVER DOES NOT SEE THAT MONEY
IT GOES STRAIGHT TO THE COMPANY IT IS A CON.
And with a multi million dollar corporation like Applebys, an 18% service tax is a con, plain and simple. They have assets of half a billion dollars
and operating incomes in the hundreds of millions, im pretty sure they can afford to pay there staff better. This isnt some mom an pops outfit, this
is giant mega corporation, harvesting revenue as cost effectively as possible, screw them.
You know I had someone working in a grocery store the other, and this guy must have spent around 30 minutes looking for something, going into
storerooms moving boxes, even used a forklift at point to get something I had asked him for.
Did I tip him?, nope.
Can you explain why I did not tip him?, he is working harder than someone bringing out trays off food. Doesnt he deserve a tip for all his hard
work?, no he does not. Because he is not part of the artificial idea that people should pay a service tax in order to allow corporations to pay there
workers like slaves.
What about my postman?, should I tip him?, that guy walks miles every day in all weather, rain, sleet, snow to deliver my mail and parcels, wheres his
What about airlines pilots?, doctors?, policemen and firemen? WHERES MY TIPS???
Why are you such a hypocrite?
