Hello! I'm really keen to ensure the porters are properly rewarded for their remarkable efforts but I've been told the caste system in Nepal ensures they actually receive only a small part of the tips provided. We're budgeting on £3/day for tips but I've also heard that porters receive £6/ day in wages (despite an agency charge of £15/day). It looks to me as though the tip is actually a pretty large part of the wage rather than a discretionary tip. Can't be shrill about this as the position in the UK has only relatively recently improved (basic wage of £5/hr).
Any thoughts out there (- sadly too decrepid to carry my own kit!)?
