It’s Just The Tip

  1. It’s not just Europe where there is an automatic 15-18% gratuity added to all bills. Pretty much everywhere in the Middle East and Africa, too. On one hand, it makes calculating the bill easier.and it means that workers receive a decent wage. On the other hand, my experience has been that it does affect the staff’s service attitude. They’re getting the money regardless of the quality of service they provide.

  2. Totally agree with EJHoffer, in that, you can get some pretty bad service in other countries and you have no leverage. Still, there’s something strange about the fact that the bulk of their wages are based on the tip.
