One Fair Wage

Emergency Coronavirus Tipped and Service Worker Support Fund

Tipped workers and other service workers were already struggling. In this crisis, they need our help. We’re providing cash assistance to restaurant workers, car service drivers, delivery workers, personal service workers and more who need the money they aren’t getting to survive. Please help!

About Us

Subminimum wages are growing across the American economy. For decades, more than six million tipped workers in restaurants, nail salons, hair salons car washes, airports, parking lots have received a subminimum wage as little as $2.13 an hour from their employers, forcing them to rely on tips to feed their families – and tolerate inappropriate customer behavior in order to get those tips. Now, this unjust system of replacing workers’ pay with tips is spreading to app-based delivery workers at places like InstaCart and DoorDash, and app-based drivers like Uber and Lyft. And beyond tipped workers, workers with disabilities, incarcerated workers, and teenage workers have also received subminimum wages for their labor for decades. One Fair Wage is calling for every worker in America to receive a full, fair minimum wage from their employer.
