fuck entitled people
A while back I was watching some videos on youtube about raising the minimum wage (something that should totally be done) and I came across a fox news segment where they talked about a chain in new york city that got rid of tipping entirely and started paying all their workers a living wage instead. And in this segment the lovely fox new hosts showed just how out of touch they are with reality (especially considering most fox news hosts make at least a couple hundred thousand dollars per year). But the male host was talk about how he likes to “impress” the waitresses by “slapping down a fat 5 dollar bill” and they were all joking about how they like to tempt wait staff into working faster/harder by waving around money or some shit. And it just goes to show that people like them literally think us workers should be begging at their feet for tips and it’s so gross. They were all saying how they didn’t want wait staff to get living wages because it’ll make them “lazy” and because without tips they won’t get to show off how much money they have or something and it’s just so gross!!! Stop treating us like dogs who are going to do tricks in order to get a treat we’re people with lives and bills and families that we’re trying to support and you having acting like we deserve to live in poverty because you think we’ll “become lazy” if we’re paid a fair wage is disgusting!
