My girlfriend waits tables at a high end restaurant here. She gets minimum wage and gets tips. She works about 25 hours per week and makes about 24K per year after taxes.

And I usually tip about 50%. I normally eat at greasy spoons so a meal that is 5$ turns out to be 7.50$.

And I know most people don’t do as well. My friends wife works at a IHOP and she isn’t compensated properly for how hard she works.

in Cuba, a waiter earns more than a doctor, because everybody earns the same wage but waiters get tips too

In WA it’s min wage plus tips, but elsewhere, a pittance + tips.
