The End of the Minimum Wage Tip Credit in New York?

The New York State Commissioner of Labor will soon hold public hearings to examine industries and evaluate the possibility of ending minimum wage tip credits, also known as the subminimum wage.

Governor Cuomo recently stated that the practice of tip credits allows employers to pay less than minimum wage, disproportionately affects women and people of color in service industries, and is linked to higher rates of sexual harassment. See Governor Cuomo Unveils 5th Proposal of 2018 State of the State: Examine Eliminating the Minimum Wage Tip Credit to Strengthen Economic Justice in New York State (December 17, 2017), available here.
