A $15 floor is way to high. There are people with professional skills making salaries at an hourly rate that are just above $15/hr especially if they are exempt and not getting overtime. What made you decide that $15 should be the floor, other than it’s the new democrat idea being floated around?October 11, 2018 8:57 am at 8:57 am #1603588
Do you think any experienced adult should work for $4 per hour from the employer and have to live on the generousity of customers?
It depends on the value he is providing to his employer. If he is an experienced, capable worker with marketable skills, employers will compete for his services, and he’ll get paid a lot more than that.
You made two points there – one about pay amount per hour, and one about putting the burden on the customer. I don’t necessarily disagree about the latter.October 11, 2018 8:58 am at 8:58 am #1603590
DY: If Rabbi A issues a ruling on an issue no other rabbi addressed, his ruling isn’t universally binding.
So it’s a hefker velt? Just do what you want?October 11, 2018 9:23 am at 9:23 am #1603603
DY: If Rabbi Z, a legitimate posek, paskens that playing football is assur, until such time as another posek formally rules otherwise do you maintain all Jews must stop playing football?October 11, 2018 12:32 pm at 12:32 pm #1603794
Couple of items I’ve noticed and seen happen.
1) restaurants will the tip amount to the bill and base it the price including the tax. Which it shouldn’t.
2) The tip will be added to the bill and then they will add a line asking for a tip and will end up doubling the tip.
The 6.83 that CT talks about is a little ridiculous. A waiter in a nice restaurant serving several tables can ultimately make more than $75 an hour and quite possibly a lot more.
I just saw a Baal Simcha give out $200 tips to each waiter. And this was at a Simcha where the waiters are paid 15-18 an hour.October 11, 2018 12:32 pm at 12:32 pm #1603708
Bad example, but in concept, yes.
It’s a bad example because we know full well that football is muttar (unless you want to kler maybe tackle football is a sakana…) and that recognized poskim have allowed and encouraged participation in sports (at least in chutz la’aretz…).
However, a psak that tipping is mandatory when it is the norm is fully consistent with regular dinei Choshen Mishpat cannot be ignored unless you have a psak otherwise.October 11, 2018 2:29 pm at 2:29 pm #1603845
Tips don’t change the amount the customer has to pay. They just create a different power dynamic.
