Joe’s Crab Shack Eliminating Tips Inside Their Restaurants
According to Eater.com the food chain Joe's Crab Shack is eliminating tips in all of there restaurants. Instead of tips they are now offering all servers a starting wage of $14 per hour. As you could guess, those wage increases will be passed onto the customers with a menu price increase of 12-15% on different items.
Do you think this is something that you would like to see in Missoula restaurants?
Personally, I don't like this method. I like being having the ability to tip more to servers and other restaurant employees who go above and beyond just refilling my beverage. Although, I will be intrigued to see if this works. If it makes the employees happier, more power to them. Because I worked in the restaurant business for just a few months, and those hard workers deserve to be happy!
