The 7th Settlement Brewery in Dover gained national attention after announcing a plan to ban tips starting this Labor Day.
The restaurant will instead raise prices 15-20% and pay servers $45-50,000 a year. If a customer still leaves a tip, the restaurant will donate the tip to charity.
What’s wrong with tipping?
The goal is to pay staff equitably, including kitchen staff, and overcome problems that can come with tipping – sexual harassment, for example.
