Tip Credit Call to Action

By The NYC Hospitality Alliance

If you want to help preserve the Tip Credit you need to read this email and take action ASAP!

New York State Senators, Jessica Ramos and Zellnor Myrie introduced legislation to eliminate the restaurant Tip Credit based on what they call "inaction" from Governor Cuomo after a series of hearings he held on the issue last year. Based on the senators' legislation, it's clear they haven't heard from the thousands of restaurant and nightlife operators, and tipped workers who urged Governor Cuomo to keep the tip credit intact. The Governor has not yet determined the future of the tip credit. 

Now is the time to make sure the senators and Assemblymember Ellen Jaffee (the assembly bill's sponsor) hear your voice! Tell them and your elected representatives that eliminating the tip credit will hurt local restaurants and jobs!
