Sign the petition: give tipped employees a raise
The next time you go out for a meal, think about this: there is a very good chance your waiter or waitress hasn’t had a raise in 23 years.
The minimum wage in Pennsylvania is $7.25, but employees who work for tips earn only $2.83. On slow nights, when tips aren’t coming in, that’s a real problem.
It’s long past time to change that. I’ve introduced legislation that would raise the minimum wage to $12 an hour in Pennsylvania and eliminate the loophole that allows employers to pay tipped workers less than the minimum wage. Over 1 million Pennsylvanians would see a pay increase under the bill, growing the economy and helping reduce the number of workers on public assistance.
But I need your help to spread the word.
This is about helping working families get ahead and ensuring they receive a fair day’s pay for a fair day’s work. $2.83 an hour isn’t even close.
We can help strengthen the middle class together. Now let’s get out there.
