Waiting on restaurant tables can be demanding and messy work. For many food servers, however, the reward lies in the form of tips that customers leave, making an otherwise paltry-paying job a bit more lucrative.

Waitstaff might do even better if they didn't have to part with some of those earnings. It's routine for servers to "tip out" to bartenders, bussers and others who work in the dining room.
