Harlem restaurateurs respond to misleading letter published in Crain's NY Business regarding the tip credit.
To the editor:
Re "Danny Meyer and other restaurant owners pen letter urging Cuomo to abolish tipped wage" (CrainsNewYork.com):
The letter purportedly signed by restaurateur Danny Meyer and others on behalf of the controversial Restaurant Opportunities Center urging Gov. Andrew Cuomo to eliminate the tip credit is misleading. [Editor's note: The letter's organizers now say Meyer's name was included by mistake, and that he was not a signatory.] It does not represent our views or those of the other 17 female restaurateurs from Harlem who published an op-ed in Crains explaining how our small businesses and workers would be hurt if the tip credit were eliminated.
