Restaurant waiters and waitresses are tipped most consistently. Eighty-two percent of boomers are the most generous, tipping 91 percent of the time. Millennials tip waitstaff 72 percent of the time.
However, America is completely divided on the matter of tipping, according to Dara Luber, senior manager of retirement at TD Ameritrade, told FOX Business.
When keeping tipping in mind, Luber said it’s important to remember that alcohol adds up. Bartenders are tipped 61 percent of the time, boomers doing so most frequently.
Food delivery people only get tipped a little over half of the time (54 percent), but millennials are most likely to leave a tip 60 percent of the time.
Luber said millennials are more likely to order food from apps like Uber Eats or DoorDash, therefore more frequently putting them in a position to tip the delivery person.
Fifty-five percent of boomers are likely to tip cab drivers, but Gen X and millennials are less inclined. This may be due to some rideshares, which younger generations tend to use more frequently, not offering an option to add gratuity in the app, Luber said.
Parking attendants and hotel workers
Parking attendants and hotel workers are tipped the least, but are most likely to receive a tip from boomers. Luber said people are less likely to tip service workers that they do not directly interact with, such as housekeeping.
