Answering questions about the Fair Pay and Safe Workplaces order

President Trump recently revoked the Fair Pay and Safe Workplaces executive order. Originally signed by President Obama in 2014, the order required companies with government contracts to comply with 14 labor and civil rights laws.

What is a tip credit?

A tip credit allows an employer to pay an employee who receives tips less per hour, with the tips being used to make up the difference between the minimum wage and the employee's wage. The federal minimum wage is $7.25, but the federal minimum wage for tipped employees is $2.13, meaning a $5.12 tip credit can make up the difference. If an employee doesn't reach $7.25 after tips, the employer is required to pay the difference.
