The #MeToo movement has made it to workplaces where a substantial portion of workers' wages are made up of tips. When servers and bartenders rely on tips to make a living wage, does it force them to put up with harassment or abuse by patrons? If it does, would decreasing their dependence on tips give them more power to resist?
A scientifically valid poll by NPR and Ipsos recently delved into Americans' opinions about some common, potentially objectionable workplace behaviors. The pollsters found that the behaviors identified as most objectionable were still quite prevalent. It also found that men between 18 and 34 are much less likely to recognize the behaviors as improper.
