The GOP is waging war on the poor. It's minimum wage bill would actually slash the wages of workers in seven states by as much as $3 an hour. In California, Oregon, Nevada, Washington, Montana, Alaska and Minnesota, minimum-wage earners get to keep their tips. Under the GOP bill, employers would get to plunder the tip jar and pass those onto employees as wages, slashing their take-home pay. Ridonculous:
"Everything that has been achieved in seven states to support low-wage workers who earn tips is destroyed by this bill," said Sen. Dianne Feinstein.
