America, Children, and Facebook: ELIMINATE THE TIPPED MINIMUM WAGE Did you know that waiters have to earn $5.12 an hour in tips just to make the minimum wage of $7.25? Why? Tipped workers have a separate minimum wage that has been stuck at $2.13 for over two decades. IN SUPPORT OF AN $11 MINIMUM WAGE oODY's D SHARE IF YOU AGREE THAT'S NOT FAIR! "Like" us on Facebook by searching for Raise the Minimum Wage." zanthe-queer: typewriterchan: penbrydd: askawelfarecaseworker: bariumsulfateacetone: nocturnevulgaire: wellingswoman: greencarnations: kingunderthemountain: teratomarty: cleoselene: the tipped minimum wage is one of the most vile things in American labor tbh Yooo this is a feminist issue: service industry workers are overwhelmingly minorities, women, and in fact, minority women (who I am sure are already aware of this dynamic).  Holy shit that sort of minimum wage is vile and disgusting. That is also why NOT tipping your servers 15-20% in America is considered not just cheap, but incredibly unkind. And 15-20% is the BARE MINIMUM. Tipping less is justified if the server’s, like, super incompetent and totally unapologetic about it, or incredibly, impossibly, unarguably rude or something. That should happen to you, like, maybe twice in your life, unless you’ve got shit luck. Tip your FUCKING SERVERS. Yup…been going through this shit for two years I literally did not know this until just now. Too be fair, if tipped employees don’t make minimum wage after tips, their employer is legally required to make up the difference. This means that servers can make more than kitchen after tips. Still, tip your server. Don’t be a jerk. In theory, yes. In practice…“Well, you’re just not performing up to expectations. We’re terminating you. This is an at-will employment state so we don’t actually need a cause.”Most servers I’ve spoken to absolutely will not report being short on tips for that reason. 2.13 an hour is less than 1/3 the minimum, which itself is not a living wage, at this point in US history. The minimum wage for any form of employment, in the US, was originally meant to be sufficient to support a couple and their two children, with a house and a car. Tipped minimum is barely enough to buy food for one person. And too many people don’t know about tipped min wage. I deliver pizza and only make $5.10/hr so like the tips that people give me literally are what I have to use to live on like we don’t get paid enough

U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg SHARE THIS SANDERS SENATE.GOV c-bassmeow: Educate yourself. The USA is an oligarchy. Clinton may pretend to be a progressive but she benefits from super PAC money. Don’t let someone being a democrat fool you that they are benevolent. Most democrats are wealthy and have strong ties with Wall Street. The wealthy will do anything in their power to retain their power. It’s an immutable law of human nature. It is up to the people on the bottom to ensure this power structure is disrupted. Bernie may not be the end all be all, but he is a good start to ensure this happens.
