Women would be most hurt by Labor Department’s “tip stealing” rule -
A new analysis estimates American women could lose $4.6 billion in tips a year if finalized
The Department of Labor (DOL) has proposed a rule that would legally enable employers to pocket their workers’ tips — as long as employers pay their workers at least minimum wage, which is a measly $7.25 nationally (albeit higher in some cities and states).
The agency's proposal would repeal existing portions of regulations that currently prohibit employers from taking workers’ tips.
A new analysis by the Economic Policy Institute (EPI), a nonprofit think tank, estimates American workers could lose up to $5.8 billion in tips if the proposal is finalized; moreover, they estimate that women would be impacted the most. According to the report, 80 percent of tipped jobs — ranging from restaurant workers to bartenders to hair stylists — employ women, and if implemented, this cohort of women could lose $4.6 billion in tips.
“Because women are both more likely to be tipped workers and to earn lower wages, this rule would disproportionately harm them,” the report states.
