lol it’s not just Texas.

Google the National Restaurant Association. Also google the federal tipped minimum wage.

This sounds absolutely crazy to me. Why on earth would any government have an actually regulated untaxed income, than increase minimum wage and receive more taxes from the same money. The more I learn about US the less I understand where is this whole "best country in the world" discourse coming from.
