Tipped Workers Need Help

Laramie, Wy – Although the federal minimum wage is increasing there is still a segment of the population that some believe have been left out. That is those who get tips. Reverend Warren Murphy of the Wyoming Association of Churches says that those who get tip wages will not see a mimimum wage hike. He says that needs to change, because those workers struggle in some places. But Murphy adds that even with the minimum wage reaching seven dollars and 25-cents an hour .Murphy says many Wyoming workers will remain near poverty.
