On Top Of Things

Our company handles payroll for several types of businesses, including restaurants. I wanted to be sure I had the correct information for them concerning the new minimum wage the voters of Arizona so foolishly approved. I was pretty certain all tipped employees would be $3.75, but wanted confirmation.

I started at the State of Arizona's government information line. I told the girl who answered that I was looking for information on the new minimum wage. She told me that was Federal and I should try them.

This is the first contact person at a governmental information service, and she didn't even pay attention to the recent election. Nice.

After finally getting transferred to the labor department, I got my answer. $3.75 it is.
