How does them being from Mexico have anything to do with this? Anyway, the tip jar is out, they didn't ask for one. Second, would you turn down tips if you were getting paid minimum wage or less? If you have a brain to think about those questions, I think you found your answer...

Most likely because they would like to make a little bit more and maybe be appreciated for the hard work they do. Most of these people do not get paid much and they are probably trying to obtain any little extra that they can. Why get annoyed - you either have the choice to tip them or not. To me putting a tip jar out is less obtusive than saying asking for it directly. This way you can tip if you want or not. It is a nice way to thank someone that does go over and above their regular duties and it can also influence someone to give you a bit better service. Some people like to tip to get that extra little attention.

Tip jar or not, the decision to tip is still yours. I don't tip just because society says I should. The rationale of employees making minimum wage or under just doesn't cut it for me. Lobby the government to raise minimum wage across the board and without exceptions. I tip when an employee gives exceptional service or goes beyond the requirements of their job description. I also don't take note of the nationality of the person doing their job ... that is none of my concern either.

Tipping is supposedly to thank people for providing especially good service or are given in advance to receive special treatment. The ethnicity of the recipient has nothing to do with it. Generally, waiting tables, driving cabs, and cutting hair are not lucritive jobs. Quite often these people can't make ends meet on wages alone. They depend on tips because their employers are paying slave wages. Then the IRS audits them if they don't report at least 10% more income because the IRS expects them to be getting at least that much more from tips. These are targeted jobs. If you withhold a tip, you are depriving them of income on which they will be taxed.
