Cash Wage: $2.40
Maximum Tip Credit: $5.60
NOTE: Companies that fall under the jurisdiction of the federal Fair Labor Standards Act for minimum wage coverage may pay the federal tip credit of $2.13 per hour - see below.
Note:The cash wage or basic wage rate is the minimum required employer contribution towards your hourly minimum wage. The "maximum tip credit" - 20% for West-Virginia - is the amount of tips you will need on top of your cash wage to make the minimum wage rate. If you do not receive sufficient tips in your workweek to achieve the minimum wage for all hours worked that week, your employer must make up the difference.
