and tips are taxable income.....

Sorry Not fair to stereotype. But my wife spent many summers up in Maine, Bar Harbor to be exact, she always complained bout' the day trippers up north. Not all but most.

A family of four goes out for supper

Bill total 50-60

15% (what everyone says you are supposed to tip) = 7.50, based on $50

7x7.50 = 52.50

10%
7x5=35

Add the 10 an hour they are getting paid and its pretty easy to get there

Find a server and ask them how much they make in tips

2-300 on a good night is very common plus wages
Here, wait staff don't even make minimum wage because the fact that they receive tips exempts them from the regulations. It's also assumed that they don't report all of their tips because it comes as cash and "only suckers report all of their tips". Still, a good server can make a lot of money, on a good day/night. It averages out, but it's definitely possible. If this server was canned and auto-tip isn't something they can control, I have to think something else is going on.

Some restaurants will leave you feeling screwed over - those are the ones that go out of business.

If it wasn't for a large group - customer should have never left the restaurant and had it fixed... by the manager -

There are some server who make a crap load of cash for being a great server in high end restaurants. Article says pastor left $6.00 cash - so all the hoopla is over .29?
we went to a local restaurant last year here that only half the food came out, when the other half came it was cold. I found a manager, told her the situation politely, calmly. Our bill was fixed, we received a restaurant credit for the next time and left with a good feeling.

The waitress completely agreed with our stance, helped me find the manager, ensured that we always had something to drink and apologized a lot for what was happening.

She received a very large tip that night, it was not her fault, yet she was the one on the front line and I felt she deserved it

this is true, BUT, they do have the ability to control how they present themselves, how attentive they are to the needs of the customers.

I find most servers now are so wrapped up in their own lives (what they are doing after work, who is texting who, what is going on facebook, twitter or instagram) that they forget they are working
