The waiter has to give a % of sales to bussers, back waiters, expos, hosts, bar tenders, sommeliers, etc. at least 5% sometimes much more especially at places that sell $1000 bottles of wine.

That sounds like just a failure of the system design. A percentage of tips may be appropriate, since there are more people providing the services than the "server" who receives the tip directly. However, having any sort of obligation to pay others money that you might never have received yourself in the first place is an unreasonable expectation.
