That sounds like a great service. I liked we could support a variety of charities with Amazon Smile.

It's like many jobs, there are good days and bad days. I have a relative who is the head cook/chef at a relatively nice restaurant, and he says the waitstaff makes more money then the head cook/chef.
They generally do. Servers make more than most office workers and many times professionals with higher degrees depending how their hourly wage evens out with the tips. It's usually a very lucrative work field. The bad thing is the benefits are generally non-existent depending on the restaurant.

To be clear: I don't support tipping. I would rather the staff be paid better wages in the first place, as is done in many other places.

Was browsing the Libraries subreddit today and a few mentioned how it would affect them. Apparently some choose their local library for a charity, and several said it made up their yearly craft budget and other resources as a big help for small libraries. I have a feeling AmazonSmile reached decently far in so many pots and pockets that it's going to hurt a lot of these places. I know some struggling churches and other non-profits used it.

My guess is that is the main reason they are discontinuing the program. The administrative cost of running a program with a bazillian beneficiaries is probably quite high compared to writing a half-dozen checks to easily-vetted large charitable organizations.

Waitresses in UK are dependent on tips to earn enough to live.

My daughter has worked as waitress for more than one large rich corporate chain and they all pay their floor staff ( and cooks) as little as possible, to maximise shareholder profits. all Legal. all reprehensible.

That feels like such a scam. I'm a good tipper, but I'd much rather the wait staff was just properly compensated in the first place.
