Sub-Minimum Wage Survey

In New York State, some workers are paid a “sub-minimum wage,” which means that their employer pays a flat rate of $7.50 per hour, and the remainder of $2.90 is made up with tips. If tips plus the lower minimum wage do not average out to be at least the minimum wage of $10.40, the employer is required to make up the difference.

We'd like to talk to you

Governor Cuomo has proposed changes to the tip credit allowance for sub-minimum wage employees. We are conducting a survey of tipped workers to get a better understanding of working conditions and experiences of depending on tips.

If you are interested in sharing more about your experiences as a tipped employee or with the sub-minimum wage, please fill out the form to the right or call us at 716-833-5416 ext.19.
