As the pandemic continues, essential workers continue to put themselves on the line to ring in our groceries.
The federal government recently announced a raise for frontline employees, but some have suggested more ways we can show our thanks.
Just as we tip our waiters and baristas, Canadians have suggested tipping our cashiers as well.
Could grocery stores and other essential biz add a tipping option to their registers so you can support their staff too? They can hit you up for like food bank donations and such now. I know these workers have their jobs still, but feeling some extra gratutude to them.

There have been several cases of employees in Vancouver grocery and retail stores contracting COVID-19, despite measures put in place.
Would you tip frontline staff at your local grocery or retail store checkout amid the pandemic? #Vancouver

So, would you tip essential workers during your next grocery store or retail visit?
