Automatic gratuity being offset by lower pay

"Most cruise lines distribute the gratuity charges among a number of workers, including some, like laundry workers, who previously didn't receive tips, Guilford said. But some workers, like room stewards, have seen their overall pay decrease because they now earn less in tips than they used to, Guilford said, and some workers who began receiving tips after the shift to automatic gratuity have seen no change in their overall pay because their base salaries have decreased by the amount they now receive in gratuity."
