Tip Your Server Time-And-A-Half On Independence Day

If you eat out on the Fourth of July, or if you use any service that normally involves tipping, it is the right and patriotic thing to do to tip the person helping you at a time-and-a-half rate.

If you normally tip at 15%, leave 22.5%. And so on up the scale.

This is the pay rate you would expect to be paid if you were to work on a holiday.

If you are not paid this rate for work on a holiday, please don’t take that out on somebody else.

Celebrate Independence Day by doing right by your fellow American.

Also, do right by any immigrants you encounter.
