    on tips

    Do I say that a waiter works on tips, tipping, the tip or a tip?

    Re: on tips

    Waiters work for tips.

    (They do receive a small hourly wage as well, but in most states it is below the normal minimum wage.)

    Re: on tips

    Slightly related to what I asked before. So do people work on commission or for comission in a car dealership?
