Even if we weren't aware that servers are legally allowed to be paid under minimum wage due to the expectation of tips, we've long understood that the service industry essentially runs on them.

Some servers have reported having to split their tips with not only other servers, but most of the restaurant's staff due to their management's policies.
And if that weren't enough, the people behind those rare instances where someone leaves a staggeringly generous tip will sometimes discover that the person they intended to earmark this money towards didn't get as much of it as they thought.
