commented on Tom Douglas Talks About How a $15 Minimum Wage Would Affect His Restaurants
For those relying on tips, we should be discussing a system that essentially mirrors the commission structure of many professions. If a server's tips plus modest hourly wage are less than $15/hour for a pay period, the employer would be required to offset the difference. And if the tips plus modest hourly is more than $15/hour, the employer doesn't need to do anything. Of course, those relying on tips might find their ability to under-report their tips to their employer a bit more difficult.
It's really not that difficult to find a solution to this "problem".

Was it his use of a moribund law that prevented non-residents from marrying in MA if there marriage would be invalid where they lived? A law that was not was not hardly enforced, if at all.
Yeah, Romney is a fair minded guy.
