Not that much more for young teenagers and their wants. I remember being told by my mother at 13 that if I wanted the $100 pair of Levis to get a job. The $4 an hour Maccas job took some hours to save for those. My Levis still cost $100 20 years later.

Admittedly I've never been to the US, but my understanding is that in the hospitality industry the staff are paid pittance by the business and they make most of their money from tips. The business also charges less than what they would here to balance the fact the customer is paying for the product and the tip.
In Australia they would be on around $16-20 an hour which isn't fabulous but is livable. Happy to be corrected but that is why I thought the US tips by habit and we don't.

I don't leave big tips but I do generally tip. I don't think it is necessary to top big here in Australia because we do pay higher prices for meals etc
