Would you pay your waiter's medical bill?
A new survey shows that people seem to be OK with paying more at a restaurant so employees can get health insurance.
Many of them say yes. According to a survey released Tuesday by Public Policy Polling, about 54% of voters say they would pay more at a restaurant so that employees could have health insurance. Some 30% of voters said they would not pay more.
More Democrats were willing to pay than Republicans. About 72% of Democrats said they would pay more, while 19% said they would not. Among Republicans, 41% said they would pay more and 38% said they would not.
As it turns out, Democrats and Republicans have pretty different opinions when it comes to food in general. Here's what they said:
Breakfast. Democrats like bagels and croissants, while Republicans prefer doughnuts.
Fast-food chicken. Democrats like KFC and Republicans like Chick-fil-A.
Vegans. Democrats are fine with vegans, while Republicans have a more negative impression of them.
Olive Garden as "a quality source of authentic ethnic food." Both parties are fairly split on this one, but more Republicans agreed with this while more Democrats did not.
Coke vs. beer. The majority in both parties said Coke was better.
Fast food. Here, both parties are exactly the same. Democrats and Republicans both have a 41% positive opinion of fast food versus a 49% negative impression.
Soda. Democrats prefer regular soda and Republicans like diet.
OK, this poll is rather silly, but you can see the full results here.
why do we tip? for service .. not for paying their salary. the resturant should be paying a live able salary not trying to include the tips as part of their paycheck. i give a tip i expect service. this is not to be taken as part of the salary.
this should be extra for the servers.
the owners are to pay a live able wage.
It's too much fun to do it at home. And lord only knows, it always tastes better than the crap at restaurants. Glad I had years of high-end restaurants on expense accounts. Now, stay-at-home is twice as sweet.
Pushing more bad paper than mortgage brokers (that's tough to do, folks).
