Feedback at 5:00: Should Servers Have Salary Without Tips Or Rely On Customers Tipping?

Posted: Updated:

Wednesday's Feedback at 5:00:

 

When you finish up your meal and look at the bill, you may do some quick math to figure out a tip for your server.

But some top restaurants are banning tipping. 

Instead, they are increasing their wait staff's salaries.

They say if workers have a reliable income they can focus on doing their job well.

But some servers argue tipping gives them a chance to make more money than a regular paycheck.

Do you think a solid salary for servers is a better option, or should tipping continue?

It's tonight's "Feedback at 5:00."
