BENEFITS ALL MINNESOTA RESTAURANT PATRONS

If minimum wage were to be increased as proposed in Senate File 504 and House File 599 without a Tip Credit amendment,

it would result in a $3.30 per hour wage increase for all tipped employees.  In a typical full service restaurant seating 150 to

200 people, there would be somewhere between 20,000 and 40,000 tipped employee hours worked annually.  Therefore, the

collective price increases that full service restaurants would have to invoke to cover the resulting increased labor expenses

would cost Minnesota restaurant consumers millions of dollars each and every year.
