We work for wages usually much lower than what you get, in blistering hot temperatures, for ridiculously long hours, in the high stress situation of producing good quality food in a short period of time, but do we get tipped?

No. So, stop feeling entitled to tips for performing the simple task of taking orders and carrying food to customers.
