WASHINGTON, May 20, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Following is the daily "Profile America" feature from the U.S. Census Bureau:
NATIONAL WAITSTAFF DAY
Profile America — Saturday, May 20th. Tomorrow is the day to add a smile to the tip you leave at your favorite restaurant — it's National Waitstaff Day. The occasion is one for us to express appreciation to the many dedicated servers who make dining out a pleasurable and recurring experience. From small diners and bars, up to top-rated five-star restaurants, there are more than 531,000 eating and drinking places across the U.S. Every year, Americans spend around $130 billion in these establishments. Serving us cheerfully and efficiently are some 2.2 million waitstaff, almost 70 percent of them women. They deal daily with separate checks, reciting the establishment's specials and making sure orders are accurate. Profile America is beginning its 21st year as a public service of the U.S. Census Bureau.
