Why Tipping Is So Out Of Control In The U.S.

Tipping in the United States is on the rise and experts are calling it tipflation. In the fourth quarter of 2022, the number of tips provided at full-service restaurants grew by 17% from the fourth quarter of 2021. Meanwhile the tip frequency at quick-service restaurants rose 16% during the same time period. Experts say that's because of the newer and sleeker-looking Point-of-Sale, or POS, systems by tech companies like Square, Toast and Clover, who also have increased their sales as a result. The pressure to tip well in front of the tip receiver, before a service is completed, or in front of other customers makes a difference for many. After customers swipe their credit card, they're typically prompted with three large tipping options on a screen. While businesses can opt out of the tipping feature, most aren't. In fact, even Starbucks started prompting customers for tips in stores in September 2022. With Americans being pressured to tip higher percentages and for more services, the question is, where is the tipping point?

European visiting America recently. I went to an Amtrak train station with my disabled child in a wheelchair - immediately a very helpful red coat person ran up to us and took the wheelchair and wheeled us the whole way to our train. Just as we lifted the wheelchair up the steps he basically stuck his hand out. That was the worst example of many others over a few weeks, where having a wheelchair was an absolute burden as you had service workers run to help you without asking, and then having the social awkwardness of feeling obliged to pay them. What an awful way to run society, making everyone cynical of each other's motives. Helping other people should mostly not have an immediate and expected pay off.

You’re right, of course. It used to be like that but, unfortunately, our society is rapidly moving away from that standard on both Coasts. I got disgusted with the politicians ruining California, so after a lifetime in Orange County, I left California and resettled in the Midwest. I found a whole different world. People are so helpful and polite, and eager to help. Sadly, my fellow Americans can keep the Coasts.

Completely wrong. Your example is just kindness and dealing with kind workers. They should not expect a tip and I doubt they are expecting a tip also. The idea of tipping is rewarding good service. That is why you tip your servers, bellman, valet, and bartenders. I have personally worked as a bellman before. I was able to use my average tip amount to see if the service I was providing was good enough. It was an incentive to provide good service. And no, don't think it was the hotel not paying enough. We got a free, high quality food, good breaks, and got paid over minimum wage.
@hinata5736 22 gün önce
That’s such a twisted view… This example portrays what it’s like to see other humans just as customers/money bags that should pay for literally everything. It reduces human interaction to a financial model. Should I ask for a tip when I hold the door open for someone? (Why stop at your job, when you basically „work“ for people in your everyday life?)

I ordered some supplies from a local pet supply store and I didn't get them for 2 days. The excuse I was given was I didn't offer a big enough tip. When I was growing up a tip was a way of thanking somebody for a very good service. The joke eventually was on the driver because even though I put down $4 as a tip for bringing my order 2 miles, and it was just a cardboard cat scratcher and cat claw trimmers. How do I order cat litter and cat food I would have offered a much bigger tip, but I put in the order instructions to knock on my door. I had planned on giving the driver a few more bucks in cash but the driver ignored the delivery instructions so they didn't get their extra money

I had something somewhat similar happen at Sally Beauty last month. I bought $14 worth of product, and when the option to tip $1, $2 or $3 popped up on the screen, the employee apologized and cleared it out. I'm used to that at live music merch stands, and between that and my LMT sister I've learned that unless there's a cash tip jar, employees only see a small fraction of the amount. Same principle applies to most sit down restaurants, and I ALWAYS leave a cash tip

The "low pay" is a myth. Restaurants are required to ensure minimum wage. Many states also have ruled rules to require minimum wage regardless of tip. The median pay is like $45k before tips. Official data are probably also underreported as restaurant workers here are notorious for receiving under the table pay and not reporting their income. If you just quickly browse social media, you'll find many claiming to take home 100k+ in total pay per year. People are complaining that restaurant workers are paid less than college graduates on the premise that "everyone deserves a livable wage". Btw, livable wage to Americans = being able to save and buy a house, go on international vacations every year, while being able to feed a family of 5, and buy them brand name gifts for Xmas every year. We dont have a low pay issue; we have an entitlement issue. So go head and tip them half without feeling bad. Or none if they treat you like just a job. There's no reason why a waitress should ever be able to not want to get a college education and find more valuable work because, and I quote, "they'd be taking a pay cut".
@JohnyDoe9 2 aylar önce
I am not an American citizen but have been traveling to the US for over 20 years now, and can confirm that the tipping situation has gone out of control completely. I don't mind tipping for really good service at a restaurant, a hotel, or other places where tips are traditionally expected, or for exceptionally good service or special attention at the rest of them, but tipping someone for taking a product off a shelf (or making a cup of coffee) and giving it to me is just too much. Hate me, despise me, but I see zero added value in what you do between the moment I pay and the moment I get what I paid for. Period.
I agree completely

Just saying you should always tip at restaurants generally BECAUSE like the video said they only make 2.13/hr minimum in all but a couple states. That’s generally the rule here until something is genuinely done about that. The standard’s like 15% but if the service is bad on the waitress’ part 10% or less is fine. All these other things though, yeah totally understandable Another thing that already had tipping is a taxi if you’ve never taken one. Basically that, restaurants, and pizza delivery. Although you could now say food delivery services in general should be tipped. Haven’t gotten uber eats or anything like that myself so i can’t speak much on that

_IF_ the server did a good job, they would get better tips. I spent *YEARS* in the food-service industry. I've seen the most lazy, nasty servers make huuuuge bucks because customers were shamed into tipping. That needs to change! We need to bring back stiffing for servers who are not prompt, servers who are not courteous and servers who deliver bad food.
@simpleanswer8954 9 aylar önce
You're bothered that people raised in a particular culture expect that culture? Those servers were born and raised in a society that considers those jobs that receive tips. Of course they expect that, they've been seeing it their entire lives. Even before they ever had a job at a restaurant they saw servers getting tips. It's what they were taught to expect. What bothers ME is all the selfish jerks who want to blame the servers for adapting to the culture they were raised in. Somehow at least 156 other people are self centered enough that they can't empathize with another person. It's always a shame to see people get self righteous while also being completely self centered and oblivious to the problem.

No actually. It is the responsibility of the people who are not forced into that position in our economy to fight for those who don't have that privilege. If they fight to have more fair wages, they could be fired. If WE fight to help them have more fair wages, the restaurant owners can't do anything to us. If you don't like tipping, ask to contact their manager and get in contact with the business own and complain that their workers aren't being paid enough and that you shouldn't have to pay for their workers for the business owners.

@Cocpain 17 gün önce
Some are expecting it, well at least waiters and waitresses, you may have missed the part where they get paid less than $3 dollars an hour. So, if you where there for half an hour, and didn't tip, they got paid a little over a dollar for that... So, where dose the money I paid for the meal go?.. I can't fault that employee for the short comings of their industry, and I also didn't feel like cooking. That is always an option, do it yourself. Now if we are talking something like going to Panera, and that stupid thing you punch your order in, (like you are at a gas station) asks me for a tip and no one took my order (never anyone behind the register) and I pick up the food myself, they can GTFO.

As respulsive and cancerous the tipping culture is, I don't see it going away any time soon in the U.S. as long as the employers continue to pay their employees nickels and dimes for wage.

I'll never forget the time when me and my friends went to a sit down pizza place and because we were a bunch of kids the waitress treated us like crap. We could completely see the difference from when we went with our families to an after school celebration with friends. We refused to tip because of that. We had each planned to pitch in between 2-5 dollars for the tip and split the difference of the bill with only one paying it up front and the rest of us paying them to make the bill easy. We also went when we knew it would be a bit slower and from planning to celebration kept the pizza place and making things easy for them in mind as we all loved the place. There were only 2 other families at the restaurant and it takes you 20 minutes to get our drink order let alone you want to swing back to take our actual order? That waitress had the gall to try and follow us out of the restaurant. Her arrogance in thinking she had pinned us as low tippers and therefore easy to treat poorly bit her hard. She could have easily made $20-30 in tips since there was 10 of us and that would have been about a 50% tip. When we told her that and the manager who came to see the commotion... no one walked out of there feeling good which sucked and it was the last time anyone of us ate there too. I don't mind tipping reasonably but I do hate how tipping is treated. It should never be considered a wage and frankly shouldn't be taken out of your wages just because someone feel's you gave exceptional service.

I think services where people fear retaliation scare people into tipping. Like that lady who’s afraid to not tip her mechanic because he might cut corners on her car repair. Or not tipping your barista or delivery person because they might mess with your food. I was pretty generous during the pandemic because I knew the services sector was having a tough time and gladly tipped when I normally didn’t. But now all those places are trying to normalize tipping out of greed, so I’m retaliating against them. I haven’t been to Starbucks in a year and bought a nice home machine. I also don’t do deliveries or take out anymore. I bought a lot of home appliances and just cook more at home. My wife and I both remote work, so we just lease one car and do regular maintenance at the dealership. The dealership isn’t going to mess with a car that they’re just going to get back in 3 years.

So we have to pay the salaries of all types of workers now???? Ridiculous!!! Waiter for sit down meal, hair dresser, bartender, and food delivery person---those are the only ones that I want to tip! Beyond those 4, I don't feel it warrants a tip. SMH!

As a tourist to the US from a country where tipping is not the norm, tipping was the thing I hated about the country. I understand the reasons behind the practice, but it caused so much angst every time I purchased something. The people I met were fantastic, the system under which many of them worked, less so. I still want to return though!

Tipping is designed to take the frustration worker have for their employer, who does not pay them fairly, and redirect it to the customer. The employer is spared of blame, and the problem now becomes how generous the customer is.

Sucks because I like coffee from this local place but the coffee is $8 already, they need to chill. It's good but not that good... Also, I litterly bought a $5 water at a concert the other day and the guy turned the iPad around with the 20% tip already selected... i guess he assumed i wouldn't read and just press next but nope, i clicked no tip. I also got asked to tip when i payed for a pick up order the other day like bruh... these businesses need to chill. I'm tired of these places. Only when I eat out dining in the restuarant (which i rarely do ) will i tip. i don't get my nails or hair done or anything but i used to and tipped when i did.

I remember the days when tipping was an optional courtesy given for exceptional service. Now it often seems expected if not demanded and to be given BEFORE any service or purchase takes place and then punishment if the customer tips less or not at all. Questionable, considering a lot of establishments are pre-pay and hands-on DIY for the customer as well as a lower level of positive customer service experiences being reported. In all fairness, dealing with the public can be very tough, but that doesn't justify a lot that takes place.

It also improved our cooking. Although we occasionally eat at a restaurant, having to choose between 18, 22 and 25% tip for service no better than when it was 15%, for food which is also no better than it was - and more expensive - has led us to eat out less. So even though I sometimes pay the 18%, I spend much less money in tips than before as I no longer go into the restaurant in the first place.

Uber and doordash drivers have the choice to take the order or Decline the order when it pops up. Which is why they ask to tip first. Each order only pays 2 dollars by the company so Most people skip orders with no tip or less tip. With gas being so expensive 2 dollars to picking up, drive and deliver while spending gas is not worth it. Especially sometimes it takes forever for the restaurant to have your order ready. The non tip orders then go to combined orders or drivers who need to boost their acceptance score. Pretty much if you want your food fast tip.

I spent my life teaching and I never received a tip, nor did I expect one: I was doing my job and doing it to the best of my ability. I would tip in restaurants when the food or service were exceptional. But slovenly service or uninspiring food got no tips from me. People don't tip bus drivers or airline pilots, so why tip anyone earning a fair wage? One thing that really bugs me is what I call the upper class tip, i.e. bonuses to bosses. They're already on a good whack so why pay them more? Generally I'm not in favour of tipping or bonuses; more realistic wages for all workers of every grade is the way to go, and if anyone expects a tip from me they need to go the extra mile to earn it!

Nowadays it is there, as a matter of fact, systematically, to supplement the worker’s meager salary that the employer can’t afford or doesn’t want to pay his or her employees. We are all subsidizing business owners for their lack of ethics and accountability towards their employees. In some cases, business owners cannot afford to pay their employees more, I get it, and at some point we need to take a hard look at our priorities as a capitalistic society and treat employees with more dignity.

@@zaclangdon3218 If you get rid of tipping culture they would actually get payed. And not have to really on the wims of strangers. Tipping is a scam benefiting the employers not the workers.

If I pickup my own food, using my own gas and time, I tip nothing. If I get pizza delivery, I tip 10% (I don't do food delivery services, after reading that drivers are holding food hostage unless you pre-tip them) In restaurants (In Ontario, Canada Workers are now paid minimum wage) I tip 10% or if the service sucks, nothing. Coffee shops. etc... No tips for 30 seconds of work. I tip based on satisfaction after the fact, never, ever before!

im from israel and in major cities like tel aviv,it also feels like there is a pressure to leave a 20% minimun even if the service was not that good.i was a barthender and a watier in weddings.the hourly pay sucked,but the tips(cash of course)helped me.i think that its up to you in the end

Years ago I stopped tipping due to bad service, now I just don't even go with the exception of a very few places that still get it.

I remember when tips were also known as a gratuity. Grateful for a service provided well. Never expected. Never before the service. I feel it’s highly ignorant to suggest an amount, and always flat out refuse to pay it if it’s added automatically.

You don't need to imagine it. In the rest of the rich world, that's how it's done, and there is little or no tipping.

Just really put into perspective for me tipping at places that don't need it, especially in my state which has made tipped wage the same as minimum wage. Going to a coffee stand or other quick food stops that ask for tips don't need them, it turns an already cup of coffee and a breakfast sandwich from just $8-$10 to $12 for a tip of doing a simple job as putting coffee and sugar+cream in a cup (Unless you order some extremely bizarre coffee with 16 things added). It makes no sense to tip for providing less than 5 minutes of service to do something such as putting in an order then later handing it to you. Just my 2 cents on the topic so don't go attacking me if you disagree.

As someone who works in hospitality, I understand tipping can help, but it’s not that big of a deal if you can’t or, even more importantly, isn’t deserving. Tipping should be provided to those who provide exceptional service, and done out of the kindness of one’s own generosity, if done out of pure guilt and fear of judgement of others then it should not be given. It truly incentivizes proper service

Happiest I have ever been to tip is for septic tank getting pumped on Christmas eve...
