Restaurant’s New “No Tipping” Policy Getting Attention

Jupiter Images

A Kentucky restaurant’s “no tipping” policy is turning some heads. You’re not allowed to leave a tip, but the servers’ salaries are increased to about $10/hour OR 20 percent of the food sales, whichever is larger.

Gordon and I both waited tables in our pre-radio days, and we pulled about $2.15/hour…but then we also got tips. Sometimes it was really lucrative. Other times, we were subject to those who barely left 5 percent.

To put this restaurant’s policy into perspective:

If a server worked five hours and brought in $500 in food sales (which is REALLY easy to do in one shift), they’d take home 20 percent of that, which is $100. That’s TWICE the amount they’d make at $10/hour.

So, there’s pluses and minuses.

What would you think of this policy if you came across it? As a diner, is it good for you? As a server, is it OK with you?
