Gary Perry on Jobs

 

 


Ok to discount minimum wage for tipped workers

Excerpts from legislation: SB 253: Allowing Employers to Count Tips as Credit Against Minimum Wage: Remove the phrase: "excluding the value of tips received by the employee" from the existing law "the minimum hourly wage rate as provided under the federal Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938" and in existing law "excluding the value of tips received by the employee and the special provisions for a training."

OnTheIssues analysis: The minimum wage was set at $6.15 an hour; this bill would raise the minimum wage to $6.90 an hour, excluding the value of tips received by the employee. That means the minimum wage would go up for non-tipped employees, but would go down for tipped employees (if their tips summed to more than the difference of $-/75 an hour).
