A majority of employers pay their servers just the minimum wage, which hardly helps them make ends meet. This forces workers in the service industry to rely on tips to get by on a daily basis. The work conditions and wages became a subject of contention after a woman posted on video on Tiktok about customers not paying enough tips. The video sparked huge debate leading to many agreeing with her and many others saying she was misdirecting the blame.

The video of the woman shows remarking in despondence that the steep low wages are not enough for her to sustain a normal life and added that she had lost respect for all those who refuse to tip. She called on people to tip more. The video received a stern response from Tiktok user Amir Abdallah, who had a different opinion on the matter. The TikTok user states that it is the duty of the employer to pay its employees with a suitable amount of pay cheque so that the servers are not dependent on the guests for their remittance of remuneration of the day. The user with the username @heyy_amir says, “This is an unpopular opinion, but tipping is optional, whether you like that or not.”
