Oh please can we do a little more self promotion.
I work in the casino business and we split tips only with those who provide direct services to the dealers. Who the hell do you think make the tipped DEALERS work possible.
The people who clean the cards, sort them, bring the customers in etc. Casinos for example keep no portion of the dealers tips they strictly distribute the tip contributions made by the dealers.
Customer make all tipped employees work possible. Without them their would be no businesses and no tips. Business do not force customers to tip. If they did, the money wouldn't be a tip it would be business revenues. Customers have every right and ability to tip those workers who clean cards, sort card and bring customers in etc. If customers do not tip them then they should have no legal entitilement to any tip. Why is the customer's tip being split among those workers whom provide direct services to the dealers?
If a tip was not given to these workers then they should not be given part of the dealers tips. If the dealers actually want to give other workers part of their tips there is no problem. But, when the business is forcing them to give part of their tips to others there is a big problem. Such actions amount to nothing more than stealing.
What's the point of tipping a casino dealer anyway? Unlike in a restaurant, there's nothing a casino dealer can do for me above and beyond what he's paid to do ordinarily that isn't illegal.
