Washington Post Opinion: End the tipped wage to help back-of-house staff
Today the Washington Post published a guest opinion piece by Tim Linaberry. Here’s a quote:
As a result, front-of-house workers typically have much higher incomes than those of workers in equivalent back-of-house positions, though wages are wildly variable. The average hourly pay difference between the front and back is nearly 2 to 1 in some restaurants. This disparity hardly seems fair and is part of the reason Initiative 82 needs to be passed.
Join us for a “Dough Raiser for Initiative 82” 5-8pm, Thursday, July 28
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!
