Toronto restaurant to eliminate tipping
In many places outside of Toronto, and North America in general, tipping is a rather foreign concept. While many of us regularly debate over tipping etiquette, one Toronto restaurant is cutting the practice altogether.
The Indian Street Food Company, formerly Amaya Indian Room's Bayview outpost, is going tip-free, reports CBC Toronto. In an industry with a high turnover rate, owner Hemant Bhagwani wants to keep his back-of-house staff.
To do this, as CBC notes, he'll charge a 12 per cent administration fee on each bill. He'll also use 10 per cent of his revenue to pay his employees higher wages. "Instead of paying minimum wage, we create a pool and it goes into their wages, depending upon the positions, how many hours they're working," says Bhagwani to CBC.
What do you think of this no-tipping policy? Let us know in the comment.
