EVERY state bordering Minnesota has a tip credit!  This puts Minnesota restaurants in border towns at a significant

competitive disadvantage.  Many chain restaurants and independent restaurants will avoid opening a restaurant in

Minnesota border towns (Moorhead, MN is a classic example where many new restaurants are started in adjacent

Fargo, ND see the below).  This has a negative impact on the economies of MN border towns, and Minnesota as

a whole, as it means fewer businesses and jobs.


MOORHEAD, MN The City Council has recently been weighing the idea of lobbying for a tip credit

in Minnesota to match North Dakotas. Council members have stated that bringing new restaurants

to Moorhead is a number 1 issue for many residents.
