New York City Restaurant Workers Sing and Dance to Raise Awareness About Raising Minimum Wage

New York's minimum wage is $7.25 an hour. For food service workers who rely on tips, that amount is only $5.00. In some states, tipped workers make as little as $2.13 an hour. Check out this new video from New York City food service workers and members of the Restaurant Opportunities Center of New York (ROC-NY) who're raising awareness that the minimum wage needs to be raised. Under current minimum wage laws, 60% of New York state restaurant workers are making poverty wages.
