Is a tip to another shop's workers appropriate for end of major job?

They have strip clubs in Tasmania? If so I need to visit.

Of course they do. Brothels as well, plenty of legal prostitution. Whatever. Not my thing, if it's someone else's then fine.

Still not going though even if you're paying. Like going to Vegas to piss money away on gambling, I simply am not interested. Funny thing though, I used to go to the casino in Darwin because the food & drinks were subsidised and you could always get a cab back to the docks in the early hours. They never got a cent of gambling money though, I understand statistics.

Your in PA I don't think I would go to strip clubs there either.
There was a club outside the town I spent some time in during my college years. The guys who would go always talked about the amount of C-sec scars and missing teeth. More of a side show than a strip club, I suppose.

There was a strip club in Wilmington (next to Long Beach) that was like that, I'd go in after work with a friend, and never after dark, it was sketchy in the club, out in the carpark, and in Wilmington in general.
 
We sold some machinery to BAE systems that went to Pakistan. BAE got so tired of different vendors promising onsite installation only to find out on the day of install that the worker had quit. Thus their contracts stipulated a $15k bonus for one week's worth of work, and it specifically written in that the bonus did not go to the company doing the work with the employee they sent over. If you didn't mind server food poisoning, the guys who took the work did pretty well, and nobody was quitting over having to take the trip.

Over in engineering we're on salary not hourly. So when we put an extra hours it comes out of the goodness of our heart. We had a super hot job where the customer really wanted us to work non-stop till the job was done. One of my co-workers was smart and hinted to the customer that they stipulate that they wanted all the engineers paid hourly with overtime to incentivize them to get the job done fast. Working 12-hour days 7 days a week to get that job done felt a lot better when I was actually getting paid OT for it as opposed to chalking it up to being salary. Boy were we happy and loyal to that customer for many years to come.

I'm not sure I see a problem with a customer stipulating that some of their money go towards rewarding employees for jobs well done on their projects.
