Would You Tip The Same If Restaurant Waitstaff Made $11.25 An Hour? [POLL]
A proposal that is heading to the ballot in November would triple the base hourly wage for those who rely on tips, like waitstaff and bartenders. If the proposal passes, the base hourly wage would go from $3.75 to $11.25 an hour.
It's sounds good, if you are one of those workers.
However, many workers in the industry are considered that they'll actually make less money if this proposal passes. Many waitstaff and bartenders are concerned that prices in the restaurants would increase and people would eat out less and leave less for a tip.
Restaurant owners have strongly opposed increasing the base wage of servers.
