Tipping - join the debate
Tuesday 15 July 2008
Do you work in a restaurant? Do the staff at your local restaurant get to keep their tips? Should service charges simply be scrapped, and staff paid higher basic wages? Are you happy to leave 10 per cent or 12.5 per cent - or more? Should these discretionary charges be added automatically to bills? Is it socially acceptable to have a service charge removed from your bill? Should breakages be paid for out of the staff's tips? Should tips go straight to the waiter or waitress who served you, or should other restaurant staff - including the chefs - be given a cut?
