GOP's Minimum Wage "Hike" Slashes Worker Salaries

By

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.
