Tipped Employees Support Tipping
The most important aspect of tipping, is that servers support the tipping system. When the existing tipping system was threatened by ballot initiatives or legislation in Maine, Michigan, Washington DC, New Mexico, and Maryland, hundreds of tipped employees rallied in opposition and urged the public not to change a system they strongly support. Tipping provides an incentive for exceptional customer service that creates unlimited earning potential for servers. Typically servers earn between $19-25 per hour but many earn significantly more.
