Is Tipping a Good Thing?
We'd probably be much better off if tipping never got started. Studies have shown that tipping doesn't reflect the quality of service.
Furthermore, customers may face discrimination if they are part of a cultural group that tends to tip less. And, of course, tipping is incredibly awkward. Other countries, such as Japan and France, generally don't tip and it works well for them.
That said, tipping is often necessary because some tipped employees are paid less than minimum wage. Scroll down to see the average wages of waiters in your state.
