The Talk Tonight: No Tipping Policy at New York sushi restaurant
Wed, 12 Jun 2013 20:52:29 GMT —
A New York City sushi restaurant is giving its customers a tip: No tipping allowed.
Sushi Yasuda, a sushi restaurant in Midtown Manhattan, no longer allows customers to give their servers a tip. Instead, the restaurant is putting its workers on salary and increasing the price of its food.
The bottom of its receipts now reads "Following the custom in Japan, Sushi Yasuda's serving staff are fully compensated by their salary. Therefore gratuities are not accepted. Thank you."
Waiters generally rely on tips to make ends meet.
Do you think a no tipping policy is a good idea?
