New Hampshire's House is balking at no longer guaranteeing card and game room dealers the minimum wage in charitable games.
The House voted 180-169 against converting the workers to tipped wage employees, then voted to postpone further action on the bill.
Under the bill, the workers would receive a base rate from their employer of not less than 45 percent of the minimum wage, which currently is $7.25 per hour.
State Rep. Jeffrey Goley, a Manchester Democrat, said that is a $4 hourly cut in pay to workers who aren't guaranteed tips.
But state Rep. Will Infantine, a Manchester Republican, said workers who used to be volunteers are now part or full-time dealers and should be treated like others in the hospitality industry.
