management can not take your tips

Those of you who are servers or tipped employees have no doubt been in a situation where a table walked out on all or a portion of their tab.  Some places are really cool about this and life goes on, but others will try to hold the server responsible and demand restitution of the lost money.  Is this legal?  Find out here.

Support The Fair Minimum Wage Act of 2013!

Normally, I'm not one to weigh in on these things, but for all you hospitality and tipped employees out there, this is a must!  Call your congresspeople and tell them you support the Fair Minimum Wage Act of 2013 and that they should too.

The Fair Minimum Wage Act of 2013, introduced yesterday by Senators Tom Harkin (Iowa) and George Miller (California), would not only increase the national minimum wage level to $10.10/hour by 2015, it would tie the rate to inflation starting in 2016. It would also increase the minimum wage for tipped workers from $2.13/hour to 70% of the minimum wage.

Raise the Minimum Wage

In last night’s State of the Union speech, President Obama called for the federal minimum wage to be raised to $9 per hour.  This is great for the average minimum wage worker, but not so great for servers and other tipped employees.  Read more of Raise the Minimum Wage at DietrichDuke.com
