Americans are tired of tipping for every service
The high cost of living due to inflation has caused citizens to tip less than before. For some basic services where workers are paid minimum wage this is seen as worrying by experts in the US, yet they say consumers are tired of tipping demands.
Fewer consumers are tipping when eating out compared to last year, according to a new report from Bankrate.
"Inflation and general economic distress seem to be making Americans stingier with their tipping habits, yet we're facing more tipping demands than ever before," said Ted Rossman, industry analyst at Bankrate.
Many feel the pressure to tip has increased over the past year, NerdWallet's Consumer Budgeting report also found.
However, two-thirds of Americans have a negative view of tipping, according to Bankrate, especially when it comes to payment requests with pre-set options that can range from 15% to 35% per transaction.
