Kiss My Grits! Those Tips Are Mine!

      Classify tips as wages and call it good?  No!  I don't think so!    Some States have particular jobs paying less than their State's minimum wage.  Particularly onerous to employees are gifted tips stripped and categorized as earned wages in order to subsidize an employer's payroll costs. This practice must stop.  If a State legislates a minimum wage, that State must level minimums for all occupations and not discriminate.  Tips are not mandatory but gifted.  Tips can not be counted as wages.  Gift legislation will apply to tips. Our Campaign does not support gift taxes. Our Campaign neither supports a federal income tax.  We support service and wait staff who are struggling and working hard to get by.
