WORKERS SHOULD BE given a right to their tips, PhD student James Larkin has argued in an opinion piece on TheJournal.ie this morning. 

Larkin said he once worked in a café where the owner decided to use tips for staff parties.

Yesterday evening, a Sinn Féin bill to give workers a legal right to their tips passed Committee stage with all-party support. 

The bill would make it illegal for employers to take workers’ tips and ensure that workers are protected by law. 

So, today we’re asking: Should employers be banned from keeping workers tips? 


Poll Results:

Yes (13401)
No (528)
I'm not sure (133)
