Service workers are bearing the brunt of the economic crisis caused by coronavirus. You can help!
Tipped workers and service workers were already struggling. In this crisis, they need our help.
Under federal law, tipped workers can be paid a sub-minimum wage. Tips are supposed to make up the difference, but they often don’t. And because of a policy that’s literally a holdover from the slavery era, our nations’ largest workforce of women of color work hard all day for pocket change. Which means when a crisis hits, and tips disappear, they’ve got nothing.
