In forty states in this country, the legal hourly wage for servers is 1/3 or less the minimum wage (which is still, nationally, almost 25% lower, apparently than Canada's).

I don't agree the original poster's service was terrible. It was mediocre/average. Certainly not outstanding, excellent, great, even good. But it's customary here to tip based on the check. Her check was $33 - they ordered, received, and consumed $33 of food and beverage. In her position, I would have calculated my tip on that amount.

I don't think she's wrong to have tipped $2. I think tipping nothing would have been wrong.

Well we'll have to disagree with the service, in fact I think the restaurant should have comped them the entire check. I have no proeblem if you would tip for something like this, tipping should always be a personal choice.

As for the wages being hire in Canada, I know, no one has disputed that. The point is that it is possible to increase the server's wage, allow people to tip based on service and not as a means of pay (that's the employer's responsibility) and still not price the restaurant out of business.
