Default Porter Tipping?

I will preface by saying I always tip for good service and have prepaid tips on cruises several times.

I always have an issue as soon as you get to port. Is is necessary to tip the porter as they simply put your luggage on a cart? I have heard that if you don't they throw your luggage around,etc. Or the luggage won't get to your room,etc.

But I did hear that they were also paid very well on a salary and their wages were not tip reliant.

What are the thoughts on this.
