I saw some post that pretty much sum's it up. This new policy makes it no longer a tip. It is now a surcharge added to our statement to cover the wages of the serving staff. The staff has no real incentive to perform well for the tip, they will get pretty much the same as others in their same position regardless of how hard, or not so hard, they work at it.
Can I get an Amen here?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!
