Restaurant workers will likely keep their tips after all

After a battle over whether tip-pooling would become the new norm, servers and other tipped restaurant staffers will be allowed to keep their own money.

Congress is set to vote this week on a budget bill that includes a provision ensuring workers can keep their own tips. The provision, which is likely to pass, comes after the Trump administration had proposed a change in December that would have rolled back Obama administration prohibitions on pooling tips to share them with colleagues in jobs that are not tipped, like those in the kitchen.

Many workers opposed the change, saying business owners had no incentive to redistribute the tips, and could pocket the additional funds instead.
