some valid points here of where the responsibility for good pay rests (the employers), but there are other factors as well. First, look at the state of this economy and the actions of our government for the past 12 years since 9/11. It's become completely mismanaged, throwing money away on defense and at bailing out foreign banks. Our government supports the livelihood of the mega-rich, providing them welfare. Here we have a poor guy who busts his hump everyday to provide you the convenience of freshly cooked food. Sure, tipping is voluntary, but isn't it kind of a jerk move to place such a huge order at a food truck and not tip him anything when you're part of that top 1% who can literally wipe their ass with a Benjamin and not break a sweat?
