Enter CreditCards.com senior industry analyst Matt Schulz, to shed light on this alleged millennial hypocrisy: "It was interesting to see that millennials are the worst tippers-because the typical restaurant worker is a millennial," he told SF Gate. "...It's self-defeating."
The median millennial tip is 15%, compared to Gen-Xers, Baby-Boomers ,and the Silent Generation, all of which err on the side of more generosity with a median tip of 18%. Presumably, the 10% of millennials who don't tip at all are likely squandering their leftover funds on outlandish avocado lattes.
A further 18% of millennials surveyed said they declined to tip taxi, Uber, and Lyft drivers -- which might be a byproduct of the generation's meager job prospects and the near impossible task of growing money when faced with crippling student loan bills. Just saying!
