In New York and in Ohio. Many people are unaware that SOME tipped employees do not fall under the normally identified minimum wage. The ‘other’ minimum wage is for food and beverage employees whose tips are supposed to make up to the normally identified minimum wage or the employer is supposed to compensate up to that rate. In the 1-19-2015 issue of the News Herald there is an article from the servers point of view. In NY the server’s minimum wage is $5/hour with tips bringing them up to $8.75/hr. NY is considering raising this to $7/hr. The restaurant owners state this will raise menu prices and impact their revenue. Interestingly, there are seven states that have dropped the tipped minimum wage altogether. What are the rules in Ohio? $3.98 with tips raising this to $7.95. Note that both states minimum is MORE than the federal minimum of $7.25.
