If tipping was abolished as you wish, you would have to pay extra and would, thus, be paying the employees wage just as you claim you are not obligated to do.

That is just not how it works. Like.... God do I really have to explain that there is a difference between paying for a service and paying the salary of an employee of the company? You don't have to decide what their salary is. The market and their employer decide what it is.

If tipping was abolished you would be paying the same amount because the meal would be more expensive to compensate for the lack of tipping. You aren't saving money by not tipping, you're just making sure the workers don't get paid.

While that may be true, a single person is just a drop in the ocean economically and a single man refusing to tip does more harm than good.

It just comes down to this. I don't believe that it is my responsibility to pay for a waiter's salary. So I won't do it. When enough people believe this, there will be a paradigm shift and people won't pay tips anymore.

Refusing to tip isn't stopping the problem. The higher-ups don't see lack of tips and think "Oh guess we should stop taking tips and just pay our workers more". They think "Our workers aren't bringing in enough tips and need to be replaced because we have to keep paying the rest of their wage out of our pocket".

If you managed to get together a large enough group of people to stop tipping, you could MAYBE leave a large enough dent to get the message across (although there would be a LOT of fucked over waiters who would likely be none to pleased with the whole strike).

That said, if you got a large enough crowd to stop tipping, then you could also use that similarly large crowd to protest tipping in a less douche-y manner. A single man refusing to tip is not going to stop the tipping industry or even put the tiniest dent in it. If a single man refuses to tip, all they are doing is short-cutting every waiter they come across.

IT is simply supply and demand. If enough people stop tipping and their wages don't go up at all, then they will quit. There is supply and demand in hiring for jobs just as much as there is in setting prices for anything. Its not about protesting at all. It's simple economics

While tipping is a scam and is just a bullshit way to underpay employees, that doesn't mean that you should not tip because refusing to tip just dicks over the employees and ultimately can get them fired if it happens to them often enough (or so I hear). I always tip well but that's only because I can afford to. I think if you can afford to eat at a sit-in place nice enough to require tipping, you can at least afford to pay minimum tip just as a courtesy to the worker (as long as they did a decent job). Just consider it a "hidden fee" on your meal because that's essentially what it is.

I don't know about that. If you tip then you are just continuing the problem, you need many people to not do it in order to get the point across

The problem here is that as long as tipping jobs exist instead of salaried or hourly pay, not tipping the people in those positions isn't going to effect change.

When you don't tip, the person serving you is going to end up resenting you more than they resent their employer.

Why would Regigigas be in Ubers? Stats? Movepool? Slaking would also be "Ubers" then since he has practically the same stats and the same movepool, if not, better. With Truant he's also in the bottom of NU.
Truant is as bad as slow start. Actually, you technically still have a chance if you somehow manage to stall 5 turns to "uncripple" Regigigas. i'd say truant is worse than Slow Start. Defeatist is a better ability between all three, its just that archeops is pretty shit, which is probably why it feels like defeatist is the worst. I dont get why he deserve defeatist
