Devils advocate - why doesn’t the industry pay their people an adequate/living wage, rather than expect it from their customers. Go to any other first world country that is not the US, and you’ll see how easy it is. I don’t mind paying an increased cost when I know workers are being compensated fairly

I tip 15-18% when I go out to eat in restaurants and give $5 tip to house keeping when they clean my room as I leave on Thursdays. Tbh I just want them to get rid of tipping culture by increasing the prices on the menu and make tipping optional.

How much do you tip in quick serve/fast casual restaurants (chipotle style)? I typically tip $1...

Similarly I usually tip $1 on takeout.

I tip 20% everywhere except California. California is 10% if they added the “living wage” to my bill 15% if they didn’t. Also only where I’m being served though. Never takeout, never fast food, very occasionally fast casual.

I do 20%. Trying to get down to $2/drink though. Particularly if it’s wine. Usually $1 if it’s to go.

Am a fan of no tip pricing. I don’t think it’s a great incentive to do good work.

I tip the same (15-20, sometimes higher for exceptional service). When I’m tipping with my employer’s money I’m conscious of the fact that it’s not my money, so I tip what I would if it were my money. I do the same for flights - would I pay X if this were a personal trip? No? Then I browse my non-preferred airlines to see if I can get there cheaper.

I stayed until Friday this week, #whereismy20%??

Day 5 of 4 is actually +25%. You gave the tip. You didn’t receive it.

Got an offer today...

Applied for a mechanical engineering position. Salary range was 65-75k a year. When asked about salary during the first interview, I replied 70k is my number. Later I found out that since it's a small company no health benefits would be provided, but 10 PTO days are included. Had I known about the lack of health benefits and 401k match I would have increased my bottom.

The offer today was for 70k but now I'm not sure if I should try to negotiate for another 2-3k?
