Tip Well For New Year’s Holiday—Treat Working People Well All The Time
If on New Year’s Day you make use of the services of a person who normally would receive a tip, please be certain to tip that person the same time-and-a-half rate you would expect to be paid for working a holiday.
This is only fair.
Cab drivers and waiters are working people just as you are.
If you are not paid extra for working a holiday, please do not take it out on others.
The rights and status of working people in this country are tenuous enough as it is.
How we treat other working people is a measure of our own self-respect.
Please respect the labor of others just as you would hope others would respect the hours of your life that you spend at work.
Please consider that Monday, January 2 is the day that many working people will get the New Year’s holiday. Tip well on that day as well.
While , of course, tipping well and treating other working people is something we should do each day, a holiday offers an extra opportunity to acknowledge our common role as people who must work for a living.
We will be better able to advocate for each other as working people when we get more into the habit of treating each other with respect in daily circumstances.
And, also, please don’t drink and drive on New Year’s Eve.
