Do you tip when you order takeout / to-go orders? Why or why not? If you do, how much as compared to sit-down service?

- The Fair Labor Standards Act lets employers pay tipped employees (including wait staff) down to $2.13 an hour IF their pay + tips brings them up to the minimum wage of $7.25 an hour or more but if they don't make that much, the employer is supposed to increase their pay to ensure that they're making at least the minimum wage. There have been a couple of suits on this and I wonder how many employees do keep up their end and how many don't? I really would like to see tipping abolished as with this pay scheme, it is just getting the customer to subsidize the business by paying the employees instead of the employer but I have no idea how to raise wages.Aug 2, 2011
- oops, I meant to say that I wondered how many EMPLOYERS kept up their end, not how many employees!Aug 2, 2011
- I don't know if this is true but three Pizza Hut drivers have told me they not only have to drive their own and maintain them at their own expense, they pay for their OWN gas and the delivery fee does NOT go to them, it goes to Pizza Hut! That and their paper and cardboard comes from rainforest destruction in Indonesia.
So now we only order local (which tastes better anyway) and I get off my heinously huge haunches and walk and pick it up myself and I told Pizza Hut so.Aug 2, 2011
- Always. I do 10% take out, 20% for sit down. Only seems fair because for sit down, your server is spending more more time and effort.Aug 2, 2011
- The server is charged taxes based upon their total sales. There is the government assumption that every server gets a minimum tip and they automatically pay taxes on that assumed wage. I tip 10% for takeout and 15-20% for regular service.Aug 2, 2011
- Thank you! Someone gets it ;)Aug 2, 2011
