My daughters friend works in a local Mexican restaurant at the weekends and only gets as $1 an hour. So you really are obliged to tip, but on the other hand it is a lot cheaper to go out to eat here, so it's not too bad.
    What they earn is irrelevant, tipping should be a courtesy and not an obligation. Why should customers pay their wages so the restaurant don't have to?

    It all evens itself out - in the US the food etc is a lot cheaper to eat out and to balance that out the serving staff don't get great wages so tips are part of the wages for them and it's pretty much expected and part of the norm

    In the UK eating out is a lot more expensive to help pay at the very least minimum wage and the serving staff etc get paid a lot more - that's balanced out by the price we need to pay for the food but tipping isn't part of the norm even though most do give a small tip

    Either way the customer will end up giving out the same level of money
