The Trump Department of Labor is moving quickly to push a new rule that will make tips the property of restaurant owners rather than workers. Backed by the National Restaurant Association, the chain restaurant lobby, this rule is just another attempt to keep workers’ wages low and let customers make up the difference.
Time is running out - they want to sneak this rule through without hearing from workers, customers, or even employers who disagree. That is why they are pushing it during the busiest time of year for people who work in restaurants. This process is undemocratic and underhanded.
Join us to say no to #tiptheft and stop this rule from being implemented. This will take place at the JFK Federal Building, outside of the U.S. DOL local Wage & Hour division offices, at 15 Sudbury St., Boston. This is easily accessible from Govt Center and Haymarket T stations.
