Skip to comments.Labor department could change how tips are handed out

Servers, and in particular women, can receive larger tips if they touch their customers, call customers by name, smile, crouch next to the table and engage in other similar behaviors. This puts workers who depend on tips in a difficult position when faced with inappropriate customer behavior, ROC wrote.
Chaisson called ROC the Scientology of the restaurant industry and supports the government proposal.
It is a pragmatic and sensible plan, he said.
The Trump administrations pending policy change would reverse an Obama administration rule, which holds that tips are the exclusive property of waiters.

I can’t stand it when a waiter or waitress crouches by the table.
But, what I hate the most is when the serve takes a seat right across from me.
I’m like, WHAT THE HELL?
I am disgusted that anyone would demand federal involvement in tipping. I tip individuals, often generously. Any tips for a tip pool would be minimal and would not be influenced by the quality of service.
When the waitstaff crouches next to me, I appreciate it because I am at eye level and it is easier to hear them, make sure they understand what the order is.
I feel your pain bro. They need to be on MY side of the booth. I don't need to be reaching that far under the booth. I could pull my back out.
I don’t see how tipping is an interstate commerce issue, I really don’t l.
The government would really like all tips be given to the government for an even distribution of 10 percent of the total tips the the workers with the remaning 90 percent going to support social programs like NPR, the Endowment for the Arts, and other socialist stuff.
The employer should not have to pay the wait staff minimum wage. (Hell, there should even be a minimum wage, but...).
If the food is bad but the service is good the server still gets my usual 20%+ tip, but I explain to the server that the food was bad and thus I might not be back.
Also, I’m pretty sure that most servers only report a fraction of what they get in tips as income.
...what I hate the most is when the serve takes a seat right across from me.

Let them know that you have MRSA and antibiotic resistant tuberculosis. Theyll keep their distance.
But be sure to tip generously if they are good servers.
Pay tab & small tip with CC; tip server separately with cash on QT.
puts me ahead of locals that don't tip too
A lot of them crouch for the cleavage shot.
I always tip well for good service.
But, I swear, when he/she just takes a seat, I feel like saying... DO I KNOW YOU?
Bush’s fault. He pushed Gonzales v Raisch through the Supreme Court. Of the decision, Justice Thomas wrote in dissent that the new interpretation of the Commerce Clause would allow the federal government to regulate activity down to the level of church suppers. He was right.
If the government wants to get involved in how private citizens make their money, then I think it’s high time that the public starts dictating how those in elected office get paid. How about determining payment on the basis of days in session, number of constituents spoken to personally or emails answered personally, the amount of days spent receiving constituents in their state or district, time spent actually reading legislation they are voting on, etc. etc.
Maybe we should require them to put all the money they raise into a ‘common fund’.
I have waited on tables in the past. My take, “Hands off my tips!”
As far as I know the system is not broke.
I did not know that the Obama administration made tip sharing illegal. Guess it’s a union thing. Restaurants should decide. Sounds like people complaining are not into good customer service and they need to find another job.
Neither do I.
ask SCJ John Roberts...It would be illegal to allow 1 state to mandate buying something you don't want....However if ALL states are mandated by the Govt to buy health-care you don't want..You'll have to pay a fine if you don't buy it....
Makes sense to me.../s
O come on. Tipping is a tax. You know it and I know it and John Roberts knows it.
