The USA attitude to tipping is often a result of this being the only income and not just because of minimum wage rules, as anyone who has had to wrestle with the arrival concierge at a NY hotel to stop him taking their bag will learn. It was not till a Yellow Cab taxi driver told me this situation that I understood the aggressive attitude that prevailed.

Singapore is not the only country where tips are not very common outside tourist trap areas. Much of Asia especially Japan has a similar approach and in some places when tips are given it is often small change not a big percentage, per my observations in Thailand and other countries close by.
