so...it appears that it's like any other type of job at that level, start at minimum,get paid for doing your job, etc etc.
If my ds1 isn't getting tips for stacking boxes in a local warehouse (same level type of job) then why is a housekeeper.or the guy at the local ice cream scoop shop?
I don't think it's the norm,I think it's something we're all being TOLD is the norm.

I have tipped a couple of times in the past, but really no longer do it. Reason being, our room is just never fully cleaned. Under the beds usually have crumbs, dust on the furniture, etc. Maybe if they go above and beyond, but I have never really seen that. I don't think of a hotel housekeeper as a tipped position anyway since they make above minimum wage, unlike a waiter/waitress for instance.

I also tip $5.00 a day. I make up my envelopes at home fill and date them. I store them in the safe and remove one daily. That way there's no digging for a five at the end of the day.
