Legislative Democrats have sponsored a bill meant to raise the minimum wage for restaurant workers who depend upon tips.

Tipped workers in the state may be paid a minimum wage of as little as $2.13 or $2.33 per hour depending on the worker’s age and length of employment.

The bill, introduced by Sen. Chris Larson, D-Milwaukee, and Rep. Francesca Hong, D-Madison, would automatically raise tipped workers’ minimum wage to the current minimum wage of $7.25 per hour.
