It was a tax doge pre-1990s, but the rules changes and made it so that restaurants report the waiters income as a percentage of sales.This is so fucking delusional, do you realize how much more servers earn by tips than if they were paid straight hourly wages? It has nothing to do with kindness. Tips are a tax dodge, always have been, always will be. You want to attack someone go after the tax man.
Not to say that some tips are not shielded today, but it's greatly diminished, especially because you almost never see cash anymore. This might have changed further since I was in the game, but I believe it's more or less the same.
