Democrats propose increase for tipped workers!

On Tuesday, Democratic lawmakers introduced a plan to allow tipped workers in Michigan to be paid the same minimum wage as all other hourly employees. Currently, Michigan workers who collect tips earn a base minimum wage of $3.10 or 38% of the state’s minimum wage. If the legislation is approved, base wages for tipped workers would rise to 59% of the state’s minimum wage by Jan. 1, 2016, and to 80% the following year. A tipped wage would be phased out by 2018, when all hourly workers in Michigan would start at the state’s minimum wage. What are your thoughts on this newly proposed legislation? Are you for or against it?
