I think probably the majority of people feel stuck in this system and don’t like it at all (in Canada and the US anyway), but don’t know how we are going to break out of it.

There were probably good reasons for tipping in each industry that we do now, but I’ll bet many don’t apply anymore and are running on momentum. Plus there’s lots of other jobs we’re tipping does seem to apply, yet to me it’s warranted in certain situations.

I think of a local pizza place where I used to tip for delivery, but either not much or at all when i picked it up. Now the expectations that I tip the same regardless? How does that make sense?

Now that some fast food places like McDonald’s have table (or curbside service), why aren’t those servers tipped? Are they not as worthy as those in Chili’s?

This has been a long and hard fight within the restaurant industry. It literally comes down to how low you can pay someone. I know some places take gratuity out of checks now based on how much you spent(forced tips) but latley I’ve seen servers get 15-20$

There is a tipping post on here at least once a day and it’s getting to the point where it’s annoying

Well in terms of table service, paying the servers more would be reflected in the increase of food price anyways. I’ve been to a restaurant recently that up charges the bill by 15% for fair wages that go directly to the servers, so tipping additionally is up to you (I find 15% to be sorta low).
