firefly212: We need to make waitstaff just be subject to the regular minimum wage... also, we need to raise the regular minimum wage... at this point, given the rest of the costs of getting to work and all, its ridiculous to work for any less than 10 an hour.


But if you could only make minimum wage as a waiter/waitress why would anyone want that job when you could make the same money working at a mcdonalds or a movie theatre or just about anywhere else? I have to think that one of the main thing that attracts people to waiting tables compared to other jobs is the opportunity of making big tips.

I am sorry, I did not mean that their wage should be capped at the minimum, only that their minimum wage should be the same as everyone else's.

Silly Subby!! Inflation rates exclude food, energy, and tipping.

But if most restaurants are only paying what ever the tipped employee minimum wage is, if tipping was abolished, why would you expect any restaurant to pay whatever the standard minimum wage. Like I said, from the waiters/waitresses I have known in the past I think most of them would prefer getting tips, and the possibility of making a bunch of cash, compared to making minimum wage.

Why does anyone in any job get paid above min wage?
