When my wife and I go out to eat, we leave a tip. Sometimes, we tip more, sometimes less depending on the service. We're hearing about how in some places, tipping is mandatory. We think that if a living wage was paid, tipping would not be an issue. Am I right? amirite?

Unfortunately, even the best restaurants pay a miserably low wage, often less than $2/hour. If a living wage (i.e. a wage that is on par with the cost of living for that area) was paid, then the decision to tip or not tip would be truly up to the customer, and the server wouldn't be so heavily dependent on the whims of the customer to earn a living.
