Ok, due to recent comment posts about tips versus employers paying us more than $3.00/hour I decided to do this little poll
Take a minute and please respond if you have the time...
I will address my feelings in the next post on this issue.
If restaurants paid us a larger wage it would be passed on to the customer, some places already do this in the form of a service charge, usually 18-20% of the bill. Or they simply raise the price of your bill and pass on that increase for payroll expenses.
The question is this for both my fellow servers and for customers...
Would you rather keep the tipping system?
Would you rather go with raised prices or service charges?
I'd love to hear which you prefer and if possible why!
