Dance and sing -- and fight in Albany! Recently, workers at a handful of popular NYC restaurants got together to make a music video demanding that New York state lawmakers pass a minimum wage hike to at least $9 this March 2013. Right now, minimum hourly wage is $7.25 for untipped workers and $5.00 for tipped workers. On average, that comes out to about $15,000 annually working full time for untipped workers and about $10,000 base salary for tipped ones. And only servers in the highest-end restaurants pull in big-time tips. What does it all mean? Sixty percent of all New York state restaurant workers are making poverty wages. But some of them found time to rock out to this video to get their message across. A big thank you to the ROC-NY members who appeared in this video!
