Tips at the bar

I was wondering if my boss has to pay me, even though I generally make good money from tips as a bartender. 


  • Different states have different rules, especially now that they are raising the wages for the service industry in different cities. As far as federal goes, you're supposed to make at least $2.13 an hour if you claim a tip credit against the minimum wage. Basically, if the $2.13 plus your tips don't add up to $7.25, your boss should be making up the difference.
