All* Above All’s Destiny Lopez Responds to Efforts to Repeal Initiative 77

Statement from Destiny Lopez, Co-Director, All* Above All on the DC City Council ‘s introduction of a bill to repeal Initiative 77 – which would raise the wage for tipped workers from $3.89/hr to $15/hr PLUS TIPS by 2025.

“The people of DC have spoken, voting for one fair wage for DC workers. Yet Congress is once again trying to meddle in DC affairs. Surely members of Congress would do better to focus on their own constituents rather than interfere with DC decisions, and the DC Council, too, should look to the people’s priorities and let this initiative move ahead.”
