Late last year Governor Andrew Cuomo announced the Department of Labor would be holding a series of hearings across the state to look at the possibility of ending the tipped wage credit for service workers. This week's feature story looks at what that could mean for businesses across the state and why some think this "subminimum wage" can lead to unintended consequences like sexual harassment.
