if you agree w minimum wage, employers shouldnt be allowed to pay 2 or 3 hourly to tipped employees
Debate Rounds (3)
In states that allow a tip credit, it is just that, a credit.
From the Department of Labor:
"Where an employee does not receive sufficient tips to make up the difference between the direct (or cash) wage payment (which must be at least $2.13 per hour) and the minimum wage, the employer must make up the difference."
So, if one believes that a waitress should make minimum wage, they already do with the tip credit.
If no one tipped any employee ever, the waitress would still be paid minimum wage.
It does not matter if the minimum wage is paid solely by the employer, or comprised between the employer and tips.
It is up to Pro to show why employers must pay the entire minimum wage, instead of a lessor amount, given certain occupations where tips are expected to be earned (i.e. servers).
