Pennsylvania's updated law for tipped workers takes effect on Friday as the first update to state regulations for these workers since 1977.

The new regulations to the Minimum Wage Act were approved earlier in the year by State Attorney General Josh Shapiro and the Independent Regulatory Review Commission.

State Department of Labor and Industry Secretary Jennifer Berrier touted the new regulations in a statement Friday.

"As a former service industry worker, I have seen firsthand how employees can be taken advantage of due to outdated rules and regulations when it comes to how they are paid," said Berrier. "I know that struggle personally, hoping you earn enough money each shift to make ends meet. These updated regulations not only seek to keep tips in the pockets of workers who rightfully earned them, but to also ensure employers are playing by the same, fair rules."

The biggest updates in regulations come for tipped workers, who will be able to earn and keep more tips before having their wages reduced.

Tipped employees will now be considered eligible for their wage to be reduced from a minimum of $7.25 per hour to as low as a minimum of $2.83 per hour if they make $135 monthly in tips. Previously, the monthly requirement was $30 in tips.

The state also updated regulations to match federal regulations, including allowing tip pooling between employees and allowing employers to take tip credits, used for determining how much tip money to take out of wages, if an employee spends 80% of their work time performing duties that directly lead to tips.

Other updates include not allowing employers to take processing fees out of employees' tips and requiring employers to make clear that service charges are not considered gratuities.

The regulations were approved by the Independent Regulatory Review Commission in March and by Gov. Tom Wolf's administration in May.

Padres players sound borderline angry at Fernando Tatis Jr., and they should be

The Padres’ superstar appears to be in some hot water with his teammates as well as the organization.

For a player like Fernando Tatis Jr., who once seemed untouchable as one of the faces of baseball and certainly of the Padres, a downfall of this magnitude was certainly unexpected.

After news broke last night that Tatis Jr. would face an 80-game suspension for use of Clostebol, a form of PED, ending any chance of a 2022 comeback, it’s no surprise that a shocked Padres team and baseball world would feel anything but disappointment for the 23-year-old.

Tatis Jr. claimed that this latest incident was a “mistake”, but how much accountability does he really have built up with the rest of his teammates after already being absent from the Padres this season due to a winter motorcycle accident causing an injury? Not much.

“He hasn’t been part of our team all year, and we’ve gotten to this far without him. … We still have the same goal, which is to try to make a World Series and try to bring a championship to San Diego.”

Padres players appear fed up with Fernando Tatis Jr.

Padres players have had enough of their superstar teammate according to Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribune, and rightfully so. As they’ve pointed out to Acee, San Diego has had success this season without their All-Star shortstop, and with recent trade deadline acquisitions Juan Soto, Josh Bell, Brandon Drury and Josh Hader, there’s no reason to believe they won’t make the playoffs this season, Tatis Jr’s. availability aside.

It’s never a good look when your teammates turn on you, and yet at the same time, who could have imagined the possibility that a player with Tatis’ cache would even face that kind of music? Nevertheless, San Diego must carry on knowing they won’t have one of their biggest names in tow, and quite frankly, the organization seems prepared to do just that.

Fernando Tatis Jr.’s shocking fall from grace is a lesson for all athletes that play team sports: you are never truly indispensable and that no matter what status you may have on your team or sport, you can, in fact, tarnish your reputation.
