National Waiters and Waitresses Day

A bigger tip may be in order when celebrating National Waiter and Waitresses Day.

A day of recognition for the services provided by waiters and waitresses falls each year on the 21st of May. This is National Waiters and Waitresses Day and you are invited to celebrate with them by showing your gratitude for the services they render.

Anyone who has ever worked as a waiter or waitress in a restaurant, bar, or lounge understands how important it is to get the recognition this day brings because throughout the year, they work hard for their money, sometimes without gratitude.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, there are nearly 2,500,000 people working as waiters and waitresses in the United States alone.

Waiters and waitresses are the backbones of most restaurants. They are the ones who take the flack for bad dining experiences so it is imperative that they set a high standards while doing their job.

Although most waiters and waiters work part time, many during their high school years or college years or just to make extra money, others take on these jobs as full time employees. Most are paid minimum wage by their employers and the rest of their income is derived from tips and other forms of gratuity.

It is the tips and gratuities that keep many of them from falling below the poverty line. Therefore, it always important to tip your waiter or waitress, but today, you can let them know how much you appreciate them by leaving a little more for their service. A kind word, a handwritten note of gratitude, or a smile and a thank you will also be appreciated.

When people come to dine in a restaurant, they expect good food and good service. Waiters and waitresses know that the amount of gratuity they receive is reflected in the service they render, good or bad.
