69. no, it's when the Reaganite middle class abandoned any sense of solidarity with "menial" labor...
For waitstaff, most of their income comes from tips, and someone who leaves without paying is stiffing the workers. Committed lefties may hate corporations, but we'd never deny a worker his pay.


Speaking of which, funny how you didn't mention the workers who got cheated when people walked off without paying. Nope: your sympathy immediately flew to "property", "private property", "corporations", and "rich people". Why is that?
