Say No to Trumps Sneaky Tip Theft
with
Saru Jayaraman, President, Restaurant Opportunities Centers (ROC) United

The Trump Department of Labor, backed by the National Restaurant Association, is moving quickly to push a new rule that will make tips the property of restaurant owners rather than workers. It recently proposed rolling back a rule that protects workers in tipped industries, including
restaurant servers and bartenders, from having their tips taken away by their employers. Under the proposal, federal law would allow restaurant owners who pay their wait staff and bartenders as little as $7.25/hour to confiscate and pocket all of the tips left by customers, without having to disclose to patrons what happens to the tips. Tips account for over half of these workers income which even together still adds up to poverty
wages. More than $5.8 billion dollars will be transferred from workers to bosses under this proposal. Nearly 80 percent of the tips that would be stolen by the employers would come from female tipped workers. Many women who work for tips already face harassment and discrimination at work, and this rule adds insult to injury
