In Florida, the lowest wage tipped employees can be paid is $4.91 an hour. Note that this rate MUST total up to an average of the state's regular minimum wage of $7.93/hr when combined with tips.
This means that in the event that you do NOT receive tips to add to that $4.91 per hour, your employer is responsible for making up the missing sum. Essentially this means that no matter what, tipped employees will make at least the federal minimum wage of $7.25, assuming your employer is remaining dutiful and ensuring you receive your wage.
