The company should be re-christened “StarNickels and Dimes.”

Really interesting article about Starbucks tipping policy! Did you know that the way in which we tip servers, waiters, baristas etc is set to entirely change from January according to the IRS? Apparently the IRS have reclassified the tip meaning that a waiters tips will be taxable.
I suppose at least that would reduce the amount of employees who sue their companies over tip discrepancies. Which makes me think about who this policy actually protects - I do wonder who this policy will benefit more-  companies or their employees?
