    Do you ever leave a tip for the people that clean the showers at truck stops? I’ve seen a few, give tips.

    Has a shipper or receiver given a tip when you got ready to depart?

    If they would actually CLEAN the showers I might. But throwing fresh towels down and drying off the shower does not warrant tips.

    I do quite often actually. I don't think they get enough respect. I'll leave a few dollars so they can least get some lunch.

    $20/hr Federal minimum wage for everyone and we won't need tipping.

    Honestly I have never done so since most places are not cleaned. I do however tip very well when I eat because they do not make a lot of money. But I only tip when they do a good job. In fact when I started to do really good last year I would look for a person that did a great job at least once a week and give them a $100 tip rather it be for a drink or food. If they did great I would surprise them.
