Durbing's Call for Increase in Federal Minimum Wage Would Benefit Servers


U.S. Senator Dick Durbin’s call to raise the federal minimum wage could also mean a big boost for waiters and waitresses.

 

Most servers work for what is known as the “tipped wage,” which has been at $2.13 an hour for more than 20 years. Workers make up the difference with their income from tips. But Durbin says for the average server, that only totals around $9 an hour.

 

He wants to see the tipped wage rise to around 70% of the regular minimum wage. Durbin says that could drive up the price of eating out, but says a small additional cost for diners would mean a huge help for servers.
