I'm sick of the commie bastards at work. We divide our tips among everyone who works that day evenly. That's socialism my friend. First hand you get to see the obvious downfalls of the system.
If are good at your job, generally friendly, helpful and relate to random people, you will get tipped. That's how it works. If you put more effort into doing this, you get tipped more. Generally, I earn 50%-100% more tips than what the payout is at the end of the day. Yesterday was a huge tournament and I ended up with 1/4 of what I earned. The system works fine for someone who is an average worker, it gives them security of knowing a bad day won't fuck em over. It's great for a bad worker, everyone likes free money. But it has no benefits for a hard worker. In a smaller economy (such as the one at work, 3 or 4 on during a normal day, 7 on during a really busy one) there is more insentive to work hard, you get a payout that you can see even if it is 1/4 or 1/7 of all tips you make. In a large economy (such as the one the USSR had) working hard doesn't help you because the numbers are so large, working lazily doesn't affect your pay either.
Some people love the system and follow it blindly at work, saying how you can have unlucky days (this is true) where some people just don't tip well or others tip really well and its not an indication of your work. I caught some guy trying to pocket tips yesterday because 'he deserved it'. The guy made the same amount in tips I did but he fucks everyone else over, including me.
Die Socialist Dogs.
