Tip Wage Survey
Survey results released by the New York City Hospitality Alliance found that servers who receive tips in the city's restaurants earn on average $25.34 an hour. Bartenders at restaurants are earning on average $27.48 an hour, and bussers and food runners $17.11 an hour. Cocktail servers working at nightlife establishments earn on average $31.21 an hour, nightlife bartenders $32.35, nightlife bussers and food runners $18.84.
The survey was completed by employers from a sample of 486 eating and drinking establishments in the City, employing approximately 15,000 tipped employees.
The survey was released on October 17th, in advance of an October 20th Wage Board hearing being held by the NYS Department of Labor. The Wage Board will receive testimony from the public on how the "tip credit" should be adjusted. The tip credit allows restaurant employers to pay employees who earn tips a base wage of $5 an hour if their tips meet or exceed the state's $8 minimum wage. On a rare occasion when an employee's tips plus their base wage equal less than the minimum wage, employers are required by law to pay the shortfall. Click here to view the Tip Wage Survey ›
