We all know that tipping can be a really controversial subject. When the check arrives on the table, I'm usually wracking my brain about how much to tip the server.

As a general rule, I usually tip around 20%, unless the service is horrendous, then I may drop the tip down to 15%. I hate doing that though and always feel guilty because I know how much servers depend on their tips for income.

The folks at Thrillist and T SHEETS just ranked the best and worst US states for tipping workers, and New Jersey comes in at #24 with a tip rate of 18.65% and a minimum waged for tipped workers of $2.13 an hour.
