Would you be inclined to tip less if the federal tipped minimum wage of $2.13 an hour is increased to $4.90 as is proposed?

  1. Yes
  2. No
  3. Wouldn't matter

No waitperson in this state is paid $2.13 an hour. Maybe in Wheeling West Virginia, but not here.

I tip 20% regardless of added tax.

I don't go out to dine to save money.

If Congress had half their pay suspended, would that propel their favorability/likeability ratings over 20%? Not likely!

JustaGarr, does that include Harry Reid's Senate as Congress is define as Bi-Cameral? Why does government involved in everything anyway?

2.13/hr, pffft, democrats, always wanting to give the poor more.. why can't they see that 2.13 is a gift for working hard - Republicans of the 1816's

BillGarr2016 you are incorrect. In bars, the waitstaff is paid 2.13 an hour and they are expected to get the rest in tips. The tips are then supposed to be reported and then taxed accordingly.

Why not pay the staff a LIVING WAGE in the first place and quit playing games with their livelihood?...socialism for the rich..capitalism for the rest!

Restaurants are playing the public for suckers; not paying a living wage and then laying a guilt-trip on us if we fail to make up the difference.

They should pay upper staff of MDN $0.10 an hour.

Money, money,money! 3 scary words to whom?

NW College NCAA players have been given the go-ahead to unionize THEIR assets within the sports program association that the NCAA has been profiting from for DECADES!

Where do the similarities end when workers are equated to assets instead of bodies?

And why are Republicans so hung up on dollar numbers instead of names???

Cut everyone's wage to $3.25 that ought'a motivate 'em. Work Work Work.

Ooh! Ooh! How 'bout this...Give everyone amateur status and then outlaw unions. In no time we'll all be millionaires.

How about after investigating Harry Reid, the California Senator? and North Carolina dude, all Democrats. Give their wage to people that got the Obama Phone so they can pay their phone bill. Some of those that got that phone are pretty upset.

Nothing. I make as much sense as the rest of you. But Harry Reid and the California Senator and the North Carolina are under investigation. So it is not the Republicans that are bad so are the Democrats.

North Dakota minimum wage for tipped employees is $4.86. No one in this entire state is getting paid $2.13.

If you are I think you should report your employer to the labor dept.
