TGI Fridays: Bring Back Auto Grat

TGI Fridays: Bring Back Auto Grat

We want them to bring back auto gratuity. Servers are struggling and not being tipped even 10% of parties. Servers either need auto gratuity or a wage raise from $2.83.

Why is this important?

Servers are not able to support themselves or their families, if they don't start thinking of their employees too, families truly are going to be suffering more. There are tables who don't tip properly on parties. Many times, we have had parties of 10 or more whom did have great service -- they would even tell us -- but at the end when the bill is $250, they slip you a $10. But the government thinks hey you probably made at least 10% which would have been $25 but in all actuality you made $10.00 and still tip the bartender. So you made $5. Please help us make Fridays listen.

Reasons for signing

  • Large parties that do not tip even the bare minimum of 15% are sadly the norm. This is such a regressive move and will have a detrimental, immediate impact on servers already struggling to make ends meet. TGI FRIDAYS, why don't you give your FOH staff a pay raise AND keep the auto gratuity? Even better, raise the auto grat to 20%?
  • I am a former server at Fridays...despite the fact you say you offer 'competitive pay' you certainly don't offer competitive conditions. You demand A LOT from your servers, for the cheap food you sell. You can't be bothered with the extra book keeping? Shame on you.
  • Large parties are exactly when tables cut out on giving a tip. We should be fighting for a true living wage, but until then we need the autograt!
