Mike - thanks for that added detail. I thought they were making $69K as porters plus getting tips.

I'm not knocking that its hard work and physical labour. But if everyone is tipping $5 a bag .... they could be making $100 an hour [I have no idea how many bags are moved in an hour!]

I'm with you Krunch. I would guess that my DH probably tips 5 to 10 bucks for all four of bags - and our luggage has always made it on with not problem and no damages.
