The Second-Smallest U.S. State Is The Worst At Tipping

Posted: Updated:

If you work in the service industry, you might want to consider moving to Alaska. Yes, we know it's really cold up there in America's largest state, but it's in your best interest to buy a puffer jacket and suck it up. Because out of all 50 U.S. States, Alaska has the most generous tippers. According to data from the card payment system called Square, and the infographic made by Quartz, Alaskans left an average of 17 percent.

But whatever you do, do not -- we repeat -- DO NOT move to Delaware. The second-smallest State in America is full of this country's most terrible tippers, with tips averaging 14 percent. The other two worst offenders were Hawaii and South Dakota. It gets worse for Delaware though, because this state is not only home to the worst tippers, but to the fewest amount of tippers too. What's going on, Delaware?
