One in 10 do not tip at all. Only 23 percent revealed that they tip servers over 20 percent, according to Los Angeles Times.
When asked why those who tip less than 20 percent do so, the survey reports that they can’t afford to on top of the cost of a meal. Only a third responded that they tipped less than 20 percent because of the service received.
Half of those polled said they tip less than they did five years ago. The survey was conduct by the online coupon Web site VoucherCloud.net.
