According to this article, efforts are underway in many areas to do away with the sub-minimum wage model that dominates the world of employees who work for tips. Food and beverage servers, housekeepers, valets, car washers, and nail salon workers are among those who fall into this category. If proposed changes take effect, do you think tipping should be eliminated and wage increases passed on to customers in the cost of the meal or service?
Personally, I would like to see us move to the European model of "service compris" where all is included in the final bill.
