    I didn't read the whole article, so pardon me if this was explained; but how does eliminating tipping help them?? wouldn't they be forced to pay their workers more if there's no tipping?

    honestly though why cant this be the norm? instead of short changing employees and expect the customer to pay tip and be responsible for employees paychecks dont make sense... you should leave a tip if you want and not feel obligated too... i give tips by the way i just think the whole concept is out of wack

    It didn't really touch on wages just that menu prices would go up 12-15% which really isn't addressing the main issue [​IMG]

    Siginificantly so. They raised their menu prices to compensate. Mixed reactions, the article mentions some workers left. They probably were used to making large tips forer

    Interesting that Joe's is one of the first to adopt this model. I think it was about time some of our establishments went this route. Let's see how the populace adapts to this change.

    So basically tip is included in the meal price? I tip 20% so 12-15% aint eeem bad

    Win for the employees. Their pay goes up and I can guarantee at least 50% of the customers are still going to tip especially with good service. Bout to make my way to joes 😊
