Restaurants posting tip sharing policies

In Minnesota, over the past few months, several restaurants have started promoting the fact on the menu that "All gratuities are shared across our entire service team (waitstaff, bus staff, and cooks).)

A couple of questions

1) is this part of a national trend?

2) the service at these restaurants was well below norms for restaurants of similar quality. Admittedly a small sample size, but i wonder if this type of arrangement discourages waitstaff from extra hustle since they would receive less upside.
