State by state: Australia’s most and least generous tippersIn Australia, tipping is still closely linked to customer service – and one state is “punching above its weight” in the tipping stakes. Tassie punches way above it’s weight in generosity. Not only in tipping. Are there any Americanism’s we are not going to force onto our population ?

Tweets the age deletes Why do you keep blocking replies? Tipping culture entrenches poverty and low wages. If you care about your servers at all, do not attend any venue that expects you to tip instead of them paying their workers fair wages.

Let’s not make tipping a thing. hijessicayun Why would I tip? Let me self in, find my own table, order via app, food gets dumped on my table, plates don't get picked up, interactions with service staff 0, tip 0. Not to mention Australian wages amongst highest going around. hijessicayun Tipping is crap. Pay people properly and not make them dependent on customer whim.

Tasmanians take the crown for being Australia’s most generous tippers, while NSW folk are the least generous.37 BST The New South Wales health minister has rejected criticism of the state’s healthcare system as “third-world” by doctors speaking at a parliamentary inquiry. The typical Australian tip is $16. Brad Hazzard dismissed some of the comments made by emergency medical experts on Wednesday.06, but Tasmanians are more generous than most, leaving a $23 tip on average, while those in NSW leave an average tip of $11, according to data from payments platform Zeller. The doctors had been quizzed at an inquiry hearing about “war zone” conditions in public hospitals that remain under pandemic stress. NSW is not the most generous state when it comes to tipping - nor is it the most frequent.

Emergency doctors Pramod Chandru and James Tadros had told an upper house probe into ambulance ramping and emergency departments about their frustrations working in the “disheartening” setting of public hospitals in western Sydney. Zeller chief and co-founder Ben Pfisterer said while there were no definitive reasons some states tended to tip more, tip values were likely linked to hospitality culture and customer service. “It was not our goal when we started out our training in medical school to find ourselves in circumstances that see us failing the needs of our patients on a daily basis,” Tadros said. “Ultimately, as a country, we’re not an implied tipping country, or a culture where everyone has to tip; it is fundamentally still linked to great service,” Pfisterer said. “Ultimately, as a country, we’re not an implied tipping country, or a culture where everyone has to tip; it is fundamentally still linked to great service,” Pfisterer said.

“But this is the truth of our current working environment … it’s not equitable, equal or fair.” .” He was unsurprised to see Tasmania “punching above their weight” through its world-class produce and local economy built upon travel and hospitality, while Victoria’s higher average tip compared with NSW would likely “put a bit of fuel on the fire” of the Sydney-Melbourne rivalry.” He was unsurprised to see Tasmania “punching above their weight” through its world-class produce and local economy built upon travel and hospitality, while Victoria’s higher average tip compared with NSW would likely “put a bit of fuel on the fire” of the Sydney-Melbourne rivalry.
