Minimum Wages and Tipped Servers
Tips allow restaurants to pay servers lower wages. As more servers are hired, each serves fewer meals and earns less in tips. As a result, restaurants must pay a higher wage. This gives them monopsony power over wages. Over some range, a higher minimum wage should increase employment. Empirically, the author found the full 'reverse C' monopsony pattern of employment for restaurants, with employment first going up and then down as the minimum wage is increased.
