You have to rely on people's tips in order to make a living. Tipped employees don't fall under the normal "minimum wage" category.
no one is forcing anyone to become a restaurant server. if you are not content with the pay, then find some other line of work. patrons should not be required or expected to tip a certain percentage. a tip, by definition, is a gratuity so the amount given, if any, should be up to the individual.
