Trump Administration proposes to take away server tips, Shapiro says no way...

Pennsylvania's Attorney General is publicly opposing a proposal from the Trump Administration that would allow employers to keep employee tips if they are forced to pay those workers minimum wage.  

Attorney General Josh Shapiro made his remarks at Sam's Morning Glory Restaurant in Philadelphia.  Shapiro says the waiters and waitresses there are currently paid $2.85 an hour plus tips.  He calls any plan that allows an employer to keep tips earned by the workers theft.  "I am here today to strongly oppose a proposal by the Trump Administration that will essentially allow employers to steal their employees' tips".

The proposal, if enacted, would cost workers $24 million in Pennsylvania alone.
