MEEKS: Twenty percent is the right standard

In the past few months I have been in a number of conversations about tipping the waitstaff in the restaurants we frequent. There were a few folks in one group who did not tip very well and felt it was not up to them to supplement the low salaries of those who serve them. But there were others who felt they could not support the second-class minimum wage system that has been created for waitstaff in this country. The first place to offer protest is in leaving good tips.
