  •  Oh, and where's info on state laws on wages? (1+ / 0-)

    I killed the PDF after seeing how irrelevant it was to me and my decisions, and I may have missed it in there, but I didn't see anywhere an indication of one of the really interesting points. In some states, and California is one of them, the law is that you must pay full minimum wage to all employees regardless of whether they're in 'tipped' positions. It's a big consideration when comparing the ratings they give out on the tipped minimum wage question.

    ...for everyone's information, I will answer my own question: http://www.dol.gov/...

    Cry, the beloved country, these things are not yet at an end.

      All of the documents and action items on their website are completely useless both from a consumer and an activist standpoint. Please send your suggestions to them--they really need to hear it! And your idea about inviting restaurants to submit their information is an especially good one--they really need to be doing that.
