One of the newer restaurants in Nashville has caused a bit of a stir. In addition to the tip line for the server on the bill, they've added a separate tip line for the kitchen staff. Church and Union (I wonder where they're located?) has now given you the opportunity to tip the cooks and other staff.

The dining establishment's executive chef Adam Hodgson told Channel 4 that, with this new plan, he expects kitchen employees “will bring home anywhere from $15,000 to $17,000 this year in tips.”.

But many people wonder, "where does the line for tipping stop?".

Listeners to Woody and Jim Show were mostly against the line for kitchen staff. The main reason given was that servers make $2.15 an hour and depend on tips to survive, while cooks can make $16-$18 an hour.

Jeremy K Gover said:

Others thought the cooks should get a little something.

While others brought up the fact that restaurants make customers and their staff duke it out, instead of paying fairly across the board.

What do you think?
