    Minimum Wage For Restaurant Servers Remains Stagnant For 20 Years Under Industry Lobbying

    And, the right fought to keep it that way.

    Really, there's no excuse for this. And no excuse for it to be a political issue. But it is.

    Gee, no mention of the 14.00 per hour in tips?

    How disengenious.

    Here is an idea. Get an education and make your services more valuable and THEN go get a job that has a higher wage.

    BTW...both My cousins put themselves through the University of Iowa working as waitresses at the Amana Colonies truck stop.

    My youngest daughter is a waitress at Applebee's and she makes some impressive money for her age.

    What's the point again?

    Use wisely your power of choice. If you are 20, and you are working as a waiter while going to college, good choice. If you are 40 and are a waiter making $2 and change an hour plus tips, you have made some poor choices in your life and don't ask this taxpayer to help your stupid ass out.
