Bills will harm the restaurant industry

Dear Editor,

Two bills have been introduced in the Kentucky House of Representatives that could significantly impact the restaurant industry in Kentucky, our employees and the customers we serve. HB 1 proposes an increase in the state minimum wage while HB 191 would reduce the tip credit available to Kentucky businesses that employ workers who regularly receive tips. The Kentucky Restaurant Association (KRA) is opposed to both bills and recognizes their unintended consequences.
