"The evidence against tipping is voluminous and damning: it plunges workers
into sub-subsistence wages, subjects woman servers to sexual harassment,
encourages servers to deliver poor service to people of color (and old, young,
and foreign people), incentivizes workers to take actions that harm the
business (free drinks for big tippers!), and covers up a system of widespread
criminal wage-fraud that lands disproportionately on the backs of workers who
are already poor and marginalized."
The US restaurant tipping system is a disaster.
