On November 8, 2022, DC Voters passed the "District of Columbia Tip Credit Elimination Act of 2021" aka Initiative 82, by a very large margin. Starting in the Spring of 2023, DC's subminimum tipped wage (currently $5.35 per hour) will graudally increase a few dollars each year and by 2027 Initiative 82 will ensure all tipped workers receive DC's full minimum wage of at least $16.10 plus tips on top!

Join us for a “Dough Raiser for Initiative 82” 5-8pm, Thursday, July 28

Join us for a Dough Raiser for Initiative 82!

You are invited to our Dough Raiser for Initiative 82! From 5pm to 8pm on Thursday, July 28, Initiative 82 Proposer Ryan O’Leary is going to make drinks, while the campaign’s treasurer, Adam Eidinger, will make delicious pizzas. We’re calling it a Dough Raiser because we hope to raise some big dough to help pay our legal bills and purchase new signs to put up around DC. Yeasty puns aside, the opposition’s lawsuit is a serious matter and they are forcing us to spend more money on legal bills instead of educating voters on why the tip credit needs to be eliminated.

While we have advance tickets available, we urge everyone to donate as much as they feel comfortable contributing. If you are on Facebook, please do us a favor and invite 10 of your friends! SEE YOU THERE!
