John Stossel
Reason
August 1, 2018

Quote:
Union protestors and celebrity advocates have decided that waiters' tips aren't big enough...

As usual, those who want the government to decide that workers must be paid more insist that "women and minorities" are hurt by the market.

But waitress Alcieli Felipe is a minority and a woman. She says the celebrities and politicians should butt out.

Thanks to tips, Felipe says in my new internet video, she makes "$25 an hour. By the end of the year, $48,000 to $50,000."

She understands that if government raises the minimum, "It'll be harder for restaurants to keep the same amount of employees... (T)he busboy will be cut."

She's right...

Conservatives like John Stossel are so cheap and chintzy. Hmm

1. Stossel is not against tipping.

2. As for me, I'm a good tipper and I always tip more than the minimum.

I'm not a RINO but I've been accused of being one, also being a liberal. grin

I rarely watch Fox News or any of the other news channels these days.
