    Tip or Skip? Should Tipping Your Server Be Compulsory? Episode 225
    Niall Boylan

In this episode, Niall explores the age-old question: “Tip or Skip? Should Tipping Your Server Be Compulsory?” With the rising cost of living, tipping has become an integral part of service industry workers’ income. However, should it be mandatory? Niall dives into this contentious issue, examining both sides of the argument.

Some argue that tipping should be compulsory to ensure fair compensation for service industry workers, who often rely on tips due to low base pay. Others believe that tipping should be a reward for exceptional service, not an obligation. With diverse perspectives, Niall navigates through the debate, offering insights and encouraging listeners to join the conversation.

Some callers advocate for compulsory tipping, arguing that it ensures fair compensation for service industry workers and leads to consistent service quality. Others oppose mandatory tipping, believing it removes the incentive for exceptional service and shifts the burden of fair wages onto customers.

Niall acknowledges the valid points on both sides and suggests considering a hybrid approach: increasing base wages to a fair level while keeping tips as a bonus for exceptional service. He thanks the callers for their insights and encourages listeners to continue the conversation.
