Just finished reading a thread on another forum; the long and short of it is an outfitter placed a thread advertising for a camp chef for his operation starting next month in Africa. The thread requested the services of a chef with the understanding that the person's compensation would be the experience of living in Africa for several months and that tips would be their only form of compensation. As politely as I could, I responded and essentially indicated that hunters who spend large sums of money for an African Safari expect that the outfitter has hired a qualified chef and one ongoing complaint of hunters today is the all too common pressure to tip well. I simply indicated that many outfitters don't compensate their help properly which means that the help expect more in terms of tipping which is not fair to the clients. I'm certain that I'll receive a response telling me to mind my own business, which won't offend me in the least. I just think that this is simply another example of a less than reputable outfitter who expects his clients to compensate his staff and that clients will end up receiving substandard service because the staff are not being properly paid. At the end of the day I think clients deserve to know that staff is being adequately paid. You can't expect staff members to give 110% if all they receive are tips.
