    You are probably right, as they are usually independent contractors, but it has been custom.

    Good morning Lady P - I have heard of it here, however, it may be illegal in the US as it should be here. The owner's have their hands on the tips because in high end restaurants or where a bill is relatively large, the tip is often if not mostly included in a credit card payment which the owner has to give to the servers later.

    Because of the new normal he sales as "recovery" and how little it affords me to spend. I eat why I grow and shoot.

    A lot of other people work in their service industry and they don't get tips, it's their job. Why should I pay 20% for someone to do their job? I don't tip the server at Tim Horton's to get my coffee I also don't tip the guy at the bookstore for getting me a book. It's their job why should I pay them extra to do it.

    I work as a server and I don't mind it so much. Though, it would be nice if people around here knew what a decent tip was.
    If you strike me down, I'll become more powerful than you could possibly imagine.
