As many of you know, Council Member Will Jawando has introduced a bill to eliminate the tip credit for Montgomery County’s minimum wage. GBCC strongly opposes this bill, and will attend the Council Session today to support our member restaurants and their servers.
Preserving the tip credit system is of utmost importance to protect the livelihoods of restaurant tipped employees in our County. We need to respond to servers’ resounding opposition of this legislation. We ask that you join us to let the County Council know that these proposed changes to the tipping system are unacceptable, both for the financial stability of restaurant tipped employees and for the affordability and quality of dining experiences for our local community.
Please read GBCC President and CEO Allie Williams' letter to the Council, and join GBCC Members and staff today at 11:00am for the Maryland Restaurant Association rally, and then attend the County Council session which begins at 1:30.
