I bet the wait staff is thrilled with this policy.

  • [h=4]A New Jersey diner automatically adds tips to the checks of students and young people who eat there[/h]
  • [h=4]Parents are angry, saying it's unfair and that tipping should be a choice[/h]
  • [h=4]The diner owner says the restaurant often gets slammed from kids at the school across the street, and they often don't tip[/h]

I'm gonna guess that in NJ like some other States, they have a minimum wage just for waitresses and waiters, if they don't get enough tips to bring their wages up to the standard minimum wage for the hours worked the owner has to pay the difference....
I'm betting that's the problem...
