Happy Birthday. I have seen 20% added to the tab as a "service charge",

which I always assumed was like a mandatory tip. But I never saw it added as a "fair wage and wellness fee", where an additional tip was expected on top of that. So, you basically paid a 30% tip.
I agree with you that it is the employer's duty to pay a fair wage and not force the employees to depend on the customers. What happens on a night when business is slow and very few customers come in? The employees don't get the "fair wage" extra for that night. So that's not fair at all. The employer needs to pay a fixed wage to employees.
If there is no automatic service charge added to the bill at restaurants, then I tip 20% for courteous, prompt service. If the service was slow or lacking in attention, then I still leave at least 15%, because sometimes the kitchen is slow, and the servers cannot do anything about that.
So, yes, I agree with you. -- B4E

  I agree, that is not a tip. It's a tax. -- WinningLeadership 05/11/2022 05:36AM
