Can we just drop tipping and make restaurant owners pay their employees a living wage? Build it into the price of the menu items. When people no longer show up because their Olive Garden meal costs too much then we can adjust or eat at home. Tipping that is expected is a ridiculous model.
Right? If I go to a shoe store I don’t tip the sales person even though they presumably did a bunch of general work setting up displays, working the till etc. and provided me with some direct service as well.
