Hav­ing tips counted to­ward an em­ployee’s

Los Angeles Times - - OPINION -

min­i­mum wage makes no sense in that whether an em­ployee gets a tip or not, his or her salary re­mains the same. What would be the in­cen­tive to pro­vide good ser­vice if ul­ti­mately all servers, good and bad, make the same wage?

On an­other note, tip­ping the em­ployee would ben­e­fit the em­ployer, not the em­ployee, as it would re­duce the out­lay from the em­ployer. When I get good ser­vice, I want my waiter to ben­e­fit, not the restau­rant.
