Ontario $14 impact on your tipping?
If the purpose of the wage is to be livable, does that remove the need to tip, if tipping was to pay for server's "lower" wages. Or if food costs increase, now your % tip increases for same level of service.
Minimum wage category Current October 1, 2017 January 1, 2018 January 1, 2019
General $11.40 $11.60 $14.00 $15.00
Student under 18 $10.70 $10.90 $13.15 $14.10
Liquor servers $9.90 $10.10 $12.20 $13.05
I think tipping is unfair since servers only make 1.80/hr less which they can easily make up and more in tips with 1 table in an hour. Retail or fast food workers make minimum and don't get tip. Think about when they deal with black Friday madness or McDonald $1/free deals. Taxi get tip vs bus driver don't, etc.
I think I'll go with $ flat tip and give more depending on service or if it's ayce. The flat tip might start off at 1.80 to fill the gap but remain in line with 10-15% percentage method.
