The sneaky Trump Department of Labor is moving quickly to push a new rule that will make tips the property of restaurants rather than the people that earned them. Backed by the National Restaurant Association, the chain restaurant lobby, this rule is just another attempt to keep wages low and let customers make up the difference.
Time is running out – they want to strategically sneak this rule through without hearing from restaurant professionals, customers, or employers who disagree. That is why they are pushing it during the busiest time of year for people who work in restaurants. This tactic is undemocratic and underhanded.
Join us to say no to #tiptheft and stop this rule from being implemented.
