Seattleites think they are 'average' or 'generous' tippers. Here's how they stack up | FYI Guy

A new poll found Seattle-area residents overwhelmingly think they are pretty decent tippers. But diners may not be as generous as they think, and a survey finds less than half are tipping 20% or more, a significant decline from 2021.

Project Homeless is a new Seattle Times initiative that explores and explains the region’s complex, troubling problem of homelessness. With strong watchdog reporting and vivid storytelling, Project Homeless seeks to spotlight what is working, and what is not working, in responding to homelessness. We will also feature solutions-oriented reporting from elsewhere in the country.
