Without the lower per hour rate, prices would go through the roof to dine out, meaning restaurants will close and even more folks on the government teet. Servers take these jobs because they know that if the people they serve are supposed to supplement their income, when patrons don't it pisses off the servers. They also take these jobs because many of the hours are at night, so they can attend classes during the day and further their career.
employees are already guaranteed minimum, and at least according to posters in this thread, customers are expected
why is it that you're a total asshole if you don't tip at least 15%, but it's literally impossible to raise prices by at least 15% and send every dime of that directly to employees? it's almost as if employers don't really give a fug what you tip, so long as you pay for your overpriced steak.
Poor tippers create the stereotype, and they are wide ranging.
you keep trying to justify stereotyping. you shouldn't do that. what 100 "canadians" did before has no bearing on what the next "canadian" will do, and by giving that "canadian" poor service you have fed into a self-fulfilling prophecy
Every commissioned job in the country is like this. I would never work for a flat rate, ever.
idc what you would work for
It sure does, and also gives us plenty of establishments to choose from when we don't feel like cooking, and for mostly decent prices as well.
you mentioned you're some kind of shitty restaurant owner so of course you're totally ok with "employing" servers while other people are actually responsible for paying them. seems like a pretty sweet con tbh
