This is a pointless question, I know, but when will restaurants eliminate the "assumed tipping" practice altogether?

Restaurants should pay waitpersons at least the minimum wage, with customers still being permitted to tip if they feel the service is above average.

Tips are not for above average service they are an expected part of a transaction. How many times have you paid for something before and asked if you would like to add a tip before you even recieve the service?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 22478672

My point is that I think it is wrong that tips are "automatically" expected. I think that if restaurants would add 15% to their prices and pay their staff a livable wage, that both the restaurant owners AND the employees would come out ahead. (I could be wrong as I have never been in the restaurant business in any capacity; however, we do eat out an average of once a week. I personally would rather pay more upfront and NOT tip at all unless I have received above average service. JMO.)
