Over or Under: How Much Does New Jersey Tip?
We all know that tipping can be a really controversial subject. When the check arrives on the table, I'm usually wracking my brain about how much to tip the server.
As a general rule, I usually tip around 20%, unless the service is horrendous, then I may drop the tip down to 15%. I hate doing that though and always feel guilty because I know how much servers depend on their tips for income.
The folks at Thrillist and T SHEETS just ranked the best and worst US states for tipping workers, and New Jersey comes in at #24 with a tip rate of 18.65% and a minimum waged for tipped workers of $2.13 an hour.
The Top 3 Best States For Tipping Are:
1. Connecticut Tip Rate - 18.58% Minimum Wage - $10.10/hour
3. Vermont Tip Rate - 18.32% Minimum Wage - $5.25/hour
