it was a bit of a silly idea to begin with.
minimum wage is a bad idea. but varying levels with age or duties is an even worse idea.
I'm going to disagree, restaurants run on pretty low margins and obviously wages are a huge expense. Servers get plenty from tips for the most part, with a minimum wage raised and food costs rising, tips continue to increase. Once indoor patrons return $2-300 per night extra is not out of the territory. Why not make it like a hairdressing chair, servers pay for the tables they want to host and keep their own tips. Hmm that just came to me, I'm going to think about that more. Busier restaurants get more per table from their servers. They become contractors... Food and drink prices come down, tip % may even increase at that point when every one understands how it works. New restaurants may start with 'free' tables or low price to lure better servers. Hmm...
