One woman is going viral on social media after explaining the importance of tipping in today’s troubled times.
The struggling parent shed light on how hard she works to make ends meet and that’s why she does rely on tips to make the most of her long hours.
A mother is sharing a video featuring her $9 paycheck after she reportedly worked for a whopping 70 hours which she feels is inhuman. She slammed all of those individuals who took to the TikTok app to put forward a video that had such a check.
And the total for that turned out to be just $9, and it’s needless to say people were baffled as to what in the world is going on. So much labor with so little in return, that sort of an ordeal is unheard of in today’s day and age.
Having worked as a server and a bartender for years, this young woman feels life and the struggles of parenthood are getting the best of her. She tries to find positivity each day and the meeting ends in the service industry is definitely a notion that many people are not familiar with for obvious reasons.
She says that it’s hard to find any joy when you are not acknowledged for your work. Therefore, she wishes to seek public awareness on the subject so other people don’t suffer in the manner that she does on a daily basis.
On some days, she’s going to get $4, and when or if she’s lucky, she will get just $11. Overall, it’s a heartbreaking situation for her but going home and seeing her child smile is just the energy she needs to get back on track.
“It is hard, I accept that. My work weeks are long and they are slow and they are demotivating too”- she continued.
The mother of one was seen breaking down her paycheck and how so many deductions leave her with very little in the end. This includes subtractions related to taxes and social security.
Hence, she finds it bizarre why people curse the tipping culture when all she and others are trying to do is make ends meet.
