Politics does indeed make strange bedfellows, and the effort to undo the voters’ approval of Initiative 77 in the Nation’s Capital is a prime example. Recall that just three weeks ago by a 56-44% margin, District of Columbia voters approved a ballot question that would eliminate the tip credit by which restaurants pay tipped workers a lower wage and require tipped workers to be paid $15 an hour by 2026. Currently, the tipped minimum wage is $3.89 in DC, increasing to $5 an hour in 2020, so long as with tips, workers make the DC minimum of $13.25 per hour. On Tuesday, 7 of the 13 members of the DC city council co-sponsored legislation to overturn Initiative 77 and reestablish a tipped wage with the District. At the same time, US Representative Mark Meadows (R-NC) has proposed an amendment that would block DC from spending any money to implement the ballot measure. (Congress must approve most legislative actions within the District of Columbia). Final resolve remains to be seen, but there seems to be bipartisan support for blocking the implementation of Initiative 77.
