Why do we tip based on cost of the meal?

Let me start by saying I always tip 20% or more. But I was wondering, what’s the difference if the server brings me a plate with an $8 burger vs if it was a $50 steak?

Because the more expensive the meal, the higher the expectations for service. If I’m at a fancy steakhouse, I want an experienced professional waiter, not some high school kid.
