Give tips in CASH

I just came away from a powerful discussion of faith and the world of workers. One eye-opener for me was to be told that many homeless, low-income, or marginal workers are often cheated of some of their wages by their employers. These people lack the power to protest, so it happens. One way that service workers are cheated is when customers add a tip to their bill when they pay by credit/debit card, but the worker never receives the money - or they receive a "discounted" amount. We can help them by leaving tips in cash whenever possible. I'm going to start today.
