Tipped-worker employers should immediately respond to the misleading "tipped minimum wage" PR campaign.

A White House report promoting a substantial jump in the FLSA's minimum wage perpetuates now-widely-disseminated propaganda about an alleged "tipped employee minimum wage" of $2.13 per hour.

Proponents have undertaken a broad-based, coordinated, and intensive effort to increase the FLSA's minimum wage to $9.80 per hour and beyond.

A bill introduced last week would raise the federal Fair Labor Standards Act's minimum wage to $10.00 per hour.

If a 35% spike in the FLSA minimum wage, a $590-per-week increase in the salary amount required for exempt "white collar" workers, an immediate 41% rise in the cash wage required for tipped employees, and a new paid-time-off requirement are prescriptions for an economic upturn, then help might be on the way.

It is all-too-common for employers to make expensive mistakes where the FLSA tip-credit is concerned.

H.R. 631 would amend the FLSA to increase the required cash wage for tipped employees by more than 150%, from the current $2.13 per hour to at least $5.50 per hour.
