WHO SUPPORTS TIP CREDIT?
There are 43 States (86% of all states) represented by over 6,500 legislators that have
passed Tip Credit legislation based upon the many compelling reasons to do so.
All non-tipped employees should be adamant about contacting their legislators to urge them to support Tip Credit legislation,
as when minimum wage increases without Tip Credit legislation it means that only the higher earning tipped employees
will get mandatory hourly wage increases and they will not. The mandatory wage increases to only tipped employees will make
it less likely that non-tipped employees will get wage increases as often. To more fully understand this point,
please see also NO TIP CREDIT HURTS THE LOWEST PAID WORKERS.
Every Minnesotan should support Tip Credit legislation, as it will keep prices lower in full service restaurant and help ensure the
survival of favorite restaurants. Keeping prices from escalating unnecessarily is crucial to the survival and growth of the full service
restaurant industry. To more fully understand this point, please also see NO TIP CREDIT HURTS FULL SERVICE RESTAURANTS.
Federal Minimum Wage legislation has Tip Credit provisions and Minnesota at one time also had Tip Credit provisions
as part of their minimum wage legislation, but now MN is one of a very few states that chooses to ignore all the compelling
reasons to support Tip Credit legislation.
