The last time I remember working for tips, I was placed to work as a barmaid for St. Patrick’s day. I served so many people and had to cut off so many others for being extremely drunk. I worked my ass off and made about 20$ in tips for 5 hours of work. That’s just insane! Nobody should have to work under those conditions. I support raising the tipped minimum wage to even out the inequality and disparity of shift scheduling, that is not only up to the manager’s whimsy, but also depends upon waxing and waning of daily customer flow. I think living off tips is incredulous.
