Texas restaurants can pay tipped staff $2.13 per hour, but are supposed to make total wages up to $7.25 if tips don't get it up to that number. $290 a week, if you get 40 hours. If the employer is playing honestly....
Not allowed in Minnesota.
Curiously, how much does a breakfast with pancakes, a couple strips of bacon, a couple eggs, and hash-browns cost at one of your chain family diners?

Chain diners - IHOP, Denny's, etc., are about $8 or $9 for a breakfast like that, with the coffee additional. A mom-n-pop cafe might be $2 cheaper.
That's about the same price as around here.
Obviously it's not true that paying a fair base wage will increase the costs for the customers.
