The state minimum wage is $7.50
, but the tipped minimum wage is even lower at only $3.75.
Including tips, tipped workers in Maine earn a median wage of only $8.00 — equivalent to $16,640 for a full-time year-round employee.
 However, tipped workers generally are allowed part-time schedules that vary by season. Seven states have eliminated the tipped minimum wage — in those states tipped workers receive the full minimum wage. Higher wages reduce turnover and pour millions of dollars back into the local economy.
The Rising American Electorate refers to the demographic groups that are growing the most rapidly, historically with lower voter participation rates, but whose growing civic engagement has been crucial in tipping the scales in recent elections.
Tipped workers are primarily women, nearly 30% are moms, and although many are married, more than half of these are single moms.
Although the median age for tipped workers is 33, half of them are younger. And they are racially diverse, overrepresented by Latinos, Asians, and African Americans compared to the broader workforce. They are also a highly educated group.
Tipped workers are a snapshot of the RAE.
TIPPED WORKERS AND THE RISING AMERICAN ELECTORATE
THE STATE OF TIPPED WORKERS
In Maine
 there are nearly 22,000 tipped workers, and 59% of these work in the restaurant industry.
The restaurant industry employs nearly 10% of the workforce
 and is one of the fastest growing sectors of the US economy. Unfortunately, the restaurant industry offers several of Maine’s lowest paid jobs.
 Five of the ten lowest paid occupations are in the restaurant industry, and three of these are tipped occupations.
