"Low" states use the federal tipped minimum wage of $2.13 per hour. "Mid" states have a tipped minimum wage higher than $2.13 per hour but less than the prevailing regular minimum wage. One fair wage states have eliminated the subminimum wage entirely.
Note: In Hawaii, the tipped minimum wage is generally the same as the regular minimum wage. Employers may pay $0.75 below the regular minimum wage if an employee’s combined base wage plus tips exceeds $7.00 more per hour more than the regular minimum wage.
