Given the ubiquity of tipping culture in America, it can be difficult for Americans to navigate when and how much to tip in various situations. However, American consumers are increasingly saying “no” to traditional tipping expectations. In many cities, no-tipping policies have been adopted by restaurants, and many American workers are pushing back against the expectation of tipping in other service professions, instead calling for higher wages. Studies have also found that there is a racial element to tipping norms, with people of color facing higher expectations when it comes to tipping. Therefore, in certain contexts, it is perfectly acceptable for Americans to say no to tipping.
