Tip At Time-And-A-Half Rate On New Year’s Day

If you eat out on New Year’s Day, tip your server at a time-and-a-half rate. The same is true if you take a taxi on New Year’s Day or use any type of service that normally involves a tip. 

By New Year’s Day I mean all 24 hours of the day. The cabbie driving you home at 2 AM because you are drunk is working on New Year’s Day. 

Pay people the same money you would expect for working a holiday. It’s the good liberal thing to do. It’s the decent human thing to do.

  1. I think you should tip time and half normally because service is a shit job I know I have worked in restuarants for the last twenty five years. I use to depend on tips to pay my bills because in ohio you get 2.13 an hour if your tipped. At the first of the year the min. wage will be 6.85 if you are not tipped and 3.13 if you are tipped. Still below the 3.35 I made at my first job at 14 on the norwood park crew. The wages are well below and standard of living and it makes it very hard for us to tell our kids to get a job instead of selling drugs or whatever way kids will make their money these days. Double tip this holiday it wont kill any of us and will make a huge difference to those who depend on us and work hard for a living.
