In Cancun, everyone has a tip jar. Bus drivers, everyone. But us tourists can tip more than they make in a day very easily. When minimum wage is $4 a day, even a dollar makes a difference.

Yeah...for a studio. Average 2 bed 1 bath apt. is still hovering around $1900-$2000/mo. despite all the vacancies. Rent control is the only thing keeping us here.

As for the tipping, all I'm saying is that it's a curious tradition. It would be nice if there wasn't any, and people were just paid higher. But I suppose the argument is that it encourages better customer service. But, of course, we all know that that isn't always true. And most people don't generally adjust their tips down for only so-so service. It's funny, that's all.
