There’s a plan at the Wisconsin Capitol to end tips for servers and bartenders in the state.
Democrats Chris Larson and Francesca Hong are pushing a plan to end the state’s two-dollar and 33-cent tipped-minimum wage. They say servers and bartenders should instead be paid a living wage. Hong runs a restaurant herself. Larson says paying servers and bartenders more could turn a job into a career. Wisconsin’s Restaurant Association says now is not the time to saddle bar and restaurant owners with an additional mandated cost.
