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.

It is Thursday morning and the temperature is 14 degrees. That seems warm after all of these subzero temperatures we’ve had all week.

The children returned to school this morning after being off since last Friday due to the extreme cold temperatures.  My husband Joe and daughter Elizabeth were home on Monday and Tuesday from the factories due to the bad weather.  We barely saw any traffic go by during those two days. It was still dark on Tuesday morning when a lady came to our door asking for help to get her car out of a ditch close by our house.
