Millennials' Worst Tippers
« on: June 18, 2018, 08:40:07 AM »
But let's be fair, they're still broke so I can't blame them for not parting with more money, however, their solution to the problem?
Get Govt to force the cost of a tip into the service. In other words, we all pay more, so they don't have to tip. What could possibly go wrong? :rolleyes:


Now millennials can add “bad tippers” to the roster of negative stereotypes they’re associated with.

According to a new study from creditcards.com, 10% of millennials do not tip at all when eating out. In contrast, only 3% of the older generations don’t tip.

Even when millennials do tip, the study found that the median gratuity is just 15%. This is under the national average, and significantly less than Gen-X, baby boomers, and the ‘Silent Generation,’ all of whom leave a median tip of between 18 and 20%.

The same attitude applies to tipping those who provide services, such as Uber or Lyft drivers: 18% of millennials don’t tip them, even when provided with an option to do so. Nevertheless, close to 27% of the millennials surveyed suggested that they would prefer having a service charge included in items, thereby paying higher prices, and then doing away with tips.

But it’s not just millennials who are unlikely fork over more than 15%. Parents with young children, lower wage earners, and the less educated tip less than the overall median of 18%.

So who are the most generous?

Older people are among the most generous, with close to 55% of those over 65 tipping 20% or more. Women also tend to leave bigger tips than men, a median of 20% compared to 16%. Those who are college-educated or hail from the Northeast or Midwest also tend to leave a median of a 20% tip—above the national average.

I'll never understand how someone can be into their 20s and 30s and be broke.  The millennial generation so far seems to be absolutely worthless.

I blame the parents for enabling way too long and not kicking them out of the house. The parents heard Obozo tell them, "These jobs are never coming back", and they translated that into, "there must not be any work available", instead of teaching them about the beauty of capitalism and starting your own business, even lawncare pays well and is a respectable position.

You always have to start somewhere, even flipping burgers, but that appears to have been beneath these parents. I can't blame the millennial group, I blame the Marxist Dim party for lying to them about minwage jobs.
