"House Republicans have joined the fight to stop the District of Columbia from raising wages for restaurant servers and other tipped workers in the city. Two GOP lawmakers, Reps. Mark Meadows (R-NC) and Gary Palmer (R-AL), quietly introduced an amendment Tuesday to the House’s government spending bill for 2019, which would essentially block a local ballot measure, called Initiative 77, from going into effect.

In June, voters in the nation’s capital approved Initiative 77 to require DC businesses to pay restaurant servers and other tipped workers the full minimum wage. The new law would slowly raise the sub-minimum wage for tipped workers from $3.33 to $15 an hour by 2025.

On Tuesday, less than a month after the vote, lawmakers and business groups began their push to overturn the new law. Seven of the city’s 13 council members introduced a bill Tuesday to repeal it. Now Congress is flexing its control over DC’s budget to prohibit the city from spending money to enforce the law.”*
