Salka stands with tip credit workers
Assemblyman John Salka (R,C,Ref-Brookfield) showed his support for tip credit workers at a press conference calling on the governor to not meddle in the industry’s functioning. The workers want to save the tip credit and continue their way of life to provide for their families and businesses.
Salka said Gov. Andrew’s Cuomo’s proposal would remove the ability for hardworking New Yorkers to earn a tip and would instead raise their minimum wage; he said Cuomo’s initiative is de-incentivizing hard work and the ability for individuals’ personal strengths and character from earning them more income.
“I was immensely proud to stand alongside so many hard-working people standing up for their livelihood,” Salka said. “There are so many people who rely on tip wages and have that fact worked into their budgets. Albany should not be reaching down from on high and changing their industry and business for some misguided attempt at fixing a problem that doesn’t exist. I support them and echo their call to save the tip wage credit.”
Assemblyman John Salka represents New York’s 121st Assembly District, encompassing all of Madison County and portions of Oneida and Otsego counties.
