Philadelphia Restaurant Replaces Tipping with Salaries

Instead of the traditional tipping-on-top-of-minimum-wage model, Philadelphia restaurant Bar Marco announced that it will move to giving its employees salaries instead in April.

This means that the restaurant won’t accept tips anymore and will pay both its kitchen and front-of-house staff equal wages.

With many restaurants now moving to standardized service fees and pre-paid meal charges, this seems like another alternative model to allow restaurants to offer more fair and consistent wages to its employees.
