This is a two-sided problem. I am 100% in favor of not being asked to
tip a person who has done nothing. But the American workplace law that
decided it's OK to pay a non-living wage to restaurant staff "because
they earn tips" is equally to blame.
Are Americans ready to fight for adequate salaries for restaurant staff?
(On the other hand, being asked to tip people in other, non
customer-service situations is bullshit and needs to stop. If all you
did was take an item from a shelf and hand it to me, I'm not tipping.
I also don't want to pre-tip. I want to offer a gratuity in exchange
for your customer service after I've experienced the service.)
For an economy that's supposedly fully focused on business, America
sure is chock-full of horse shit.
