Do Security Technicans Receive Tips? Is It A Concern?

While tipping servers/bartenders/baristas is something that is common in the US, there is reportedly a trend that with digital payment/POS growth, more business are prompting customers to add a tip.

One example provided was a mortgage company asking for tips:

**** ** *** ******** *** **** come **** *** ******. ******** *****, a **-****-*** *** ***** ** * supervisor ** * ******* ******* ** Pennsylvania,said **** *** ******** ******* *** **** ****** *** **** ******. Typically, she's happy to leave a gratuity at restaurants, and sometimes at coffee shops and other fast-food places when the service is good. But, Moore said she believes consumers shouldn't be asked to tip nearly everywhere they go — and it shouldn't be something that's expected of them.
