Re: Wealthy Banker Leaves 1% Tip and Writes Insult on Receipt. Ignites Class Warfare

By leaving them cash, you encourage the possibility that they illegally don't report that cash and don't pay tax on it.

It's not the customer's job to encourage tax compliance.

That waiter/waitress starts paying tax on FICA and other levies on every cent of earned income.

Meanwhile it's the government who pays a portion of the customer's meal when it's for business/entertainment purposes.

Look at it as a small offset that helps the bottom 10% for a change.
