Speaking of ballot questions, a panel of three District of Columbia appellate judges ruled this week that the measure to eliminate the tip credit in the Nation’s Capitol should remain on the ballot for voters to decide in November. The DC measure is similar to another that was passed by voters in 2018 only to have the City Council repeal the measure in the face of significant opposition by, ironically, tipped employees! This latest proposal, known as Initiative 82, would raise the city’s minimum wage for tipped employees from the current $5.35 per hour up to the regular minimum wage, which is now $16.10 per hour and tied to the consumer price index annually. Although opponents of Initiative 82 could appeal the decision to the full DC Court of Appeals, they would have to file that appeal today and they appear more so to be gearing up for a ballot campaign with the issue ultimately being decided again by DC voters.
