From its inception, the sub-minimum wage was pegged at 50% of the federal minimum-wage. The sub-minimum wage, however, has not increased in 22 years, now amounting to less than one-third of the federal minimum. These workers, such as waiters, are 300% more likely to be impoverished. Restaurant corporations shouldn't be lining their pockets at the expense of Americans' economic security.
