The next one showed $0.01 for a six week work period, as the waitress urged her followers to tip their servers.

The waitress captioned the post: “The f*** Ima do with one penny Steven!”

“Life of a server… this is six weeks of “pay”. Tip your servers!”

The federal minimum wage for tipped employees in the US is $2.13 an hour, but for every paycheck, 6.2% is removed for social security taxes and 1.45% is removed for medicare taxes. 

Her post has sparked a debate about the minimum wage in the United States and about whether servers should be tipped heavily or not.

One person said: “It’s not my job to pay your bills.”

Another commented: “Blame the business you’re working for, not the consumers. In other countries, they don’t need to tip because they pay living wage.”
But a third offered the counter argument: “People don’t understand that servers have to [give] a certain per cent of sales to kitchen and bar. If you don’t tip, your servers are paying for you eat. If [servers] don’t work, y’all can’t eat out. No one is gonna serve you. We don’t control how much we get paid.”
