Did you know that NY is still a SUB-MINIMUM wage state for workers who collect tips? That is, the SUB-MINIMUM wage for workers with tips is only $ 2.43 at a federal level, a salary not worthy for any worker. Workers are exposed to sexual harassment, workplace abuse and discrimination.
What do we want to do?
End the SUB minimum wage and that workers are paid a decent and raise the base pay to the FULL minimum wage and keep their tips.
SEVEN (7) STATES HAVE ALREADY PASSED LEGISLATION TO PAY ALL WORKERS A SALARY + TIPS (TIPS) AND NY IS FALLING BEHIND.
In these states have found that incidents of sexual harassment have been reduced by 50% have even reported an increase in profits, state employment increased 1.3%, wages increased 2.2% and unemployment was reduced 0.2%.

NOONE DESERVES A SUB-MINIMUM PAY!
One Fair Wage demands the end of the sub minimum wage for New York’s tipped workers – like those in restaurants, car washes and in nail salons. A subminimum wage increases gender pay inequity. It also forces tipped workers to rely on customer tips and goodwill to survive, which exposes countless women to sexual harassment, especially restaurant servers, of which 61% are women and who experience poverty at more than double the statewide rate, make on average only 79% of what their male counterparts do, and experience the worst rates of sexual harassment of any industry because they must tolerate inappropriate customer behavior to feed their families in tips.
Long Island Hearing on April 20th is crucial for NEW YORK workers!
