    The variety of state minimum wage laws for tipped employees can be seen at http://www.dol.gov/agencies/whd/stat...um-wage/tipped

    In 7 states the minimum wage is payable to tipped workers without a "tip credit" and reduction of the cash hourly wage: Nevada, Alaska, California, Minnesota, Montana, Oregon, and Washington.

    I often debated moving to Las Vegas and working f and b when I was younger due to this very reason. The only reason I didn't is several people that had done this before and left Vegas told me that I was too decent of a person to survive Vegas, that I'd get eaten alive there. The few people I have run into in the f and b biz from Vegas seemed to me to confirm this take so I stayed away. Rob

    I heard about more exceptions to my state's $12.75 minimum wage law today on the radio. Agricultural workers have a minimum of $8.00 per hour and there is no minimum for outside salespeople or those in certain paid training programs.

    If the agricultural wage were $12.75 I bet we wouldn't have to bring in migrant farmworkers from Jamaica. Americans would do the work.
