Street View: Do you think New Zealanders should start tipping hospitality workers?
No. I don't think so. Maybe they are not paid enough. Even $20 an hour is not realistic. But it depends on the customer if you want to give a tip.
- John Chen, 50s, Central
I don't see why not. It's showing appreciation for what they are doing.
- Damien Bosworth, 28, Central
Why? They should be paid more instead. We are not America.
- Miharo Dinsdale, 20, Utuhina
Can do, I don't see why not. If they put on a good service they should get a reward. It's a good incentive.
- James Towers, 21, Pukehangi
I don't think so. Purely because it's expensive enough to go out. Tipping overseas is a bit different because they make most of their money on tips.
