Stop Slashing Florida's Minimum Wage
- Florida State Senate and Florida Hospitality Industry and Florida Restaurant and lodging Associatio
- United States of America
The bill under consideration by the state's tourism and commerce committee, SPB 7210, would allow restaurants to ditch the state's minimum wage for servers in favor of the lower, federal one, provided the businesses guarantee that their workers will earn at least $9.98 per hour after tips.
If the bill were passed, servers would end up taking home less pay, and customers would be paying a greater share of the salary burden.
We, the undersigned call on the Florida Senate not to pass the bill under consideration by the state's tourism and commerce committee, SPB 7210 in question and to restore the minimum wage for all Florida workers.
The Florida restaurant lobby is pushing a bill that would drop the minimum wage for the state's restaurant servers and other tipped employees from $4.65 to $2.13 an hour, creating the rare possibility of a legal wage floor being lowered rather than raised.
