    There's an easy way around it - if you go there with more than 8, split up into 2 groups.

    I have heard conflicting stories regarding opposition to this. I have heard of some who object and the restaurant backs down. I have heard some who object, and have the police called on them.

    I don't dine in large groups often, but when I have they count the number in the overall party seated and socializing together, not the separate checks.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    .
    Since typically a person getting less than Minimum Wage plus tips makes a lot more than a people getting just minimum wage, I think it should stay that way it is. When my wife worked as a waitress, she got something like $2 an hour plus tips and she was totally happy with that since the tips put her way over minimum wage. She does make sure I always tip well (if the service was good) since she knows what that job is like.

    Additionally it does usually improve service for the customers if a waitresses' pay is directly linked to her performance.

    In my experiences and observations current and former servers almost always tip well.

    No, bad waiters ought to get fired, just like all employees.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    The ****ty waiters should be fired after you complain to the manager, I shouldn't have to pay someone to do their job right.

    You must be joking. Apparently you don't know anyone who waits tables. You'd have to pay people at LEAST $20 an hour if they weren't tipped. And be willing to fire those who didn't know how to move their asses.
