The Marxist Menu


(NEWSER) – Put away the calculator and enjoy dessert: There's no more tipping at Joe's Crab Shack, the first national full-service chain restaurant to test a no-tipping policy, Consumerist reports. In a conference call last week, Ray Blanchette, CEO of parent company Ignite Restaurant Group, told investors that 18 of its 131 units are trying out the no-tipping policy that began in August, making up for lost tips by upping servers' starting minimum wage to $14 an hour from $2.13 (exact pay depends on work performance), Restaurant Business Online reports. The goal: to prevent staff turnover and improve service. "I personally believe tipping is an antiquated model," Blanchette said in the call, per the OC Register. "The no-tipping service model gets us above the fray with regards to the increased minimum wage conversations that seem to be happening all over the country."

So the Marxists in control of this country now want to pay everyone the same regardless of the service provided. Everyone is now equal in our new Communist dining utopia. The cash economy continues to be attacked with tips now on the radar. No more hiding tip income from greedy hands of big government. Grrr....wheres my scotch...

Okay, so the server makes $2.13/hr now. If they only served five tables in one hours time with a conservative estimate of $4.00/table tip then they are already losing $8.13/hr. In an eight hour shift they would lose $65.04. I'm sure that the restaurant will be raising prices to make up for the increased outlay for wages. The only losers are the wait staff...................
