Here’s a tip: if you want to be a waiter, move to New York.

A new survey of more than 2,300 Americans by has found that people in the Empire State are the most generous tippers in the US, tacking on another 23% to their bills for gratuity.

Folks in Arkansas appear to be the pinchiest with their pennies – they are the worst tippers in the country, giving only about 10%.

Tipping, of course, is a very divisive subject, with 63% of respondents saying they feel they have to leave some sort of gratuity, even if the service they got was below average. About 25% claim their tip is based on how good the service is.
