PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) -- Missing your favorite bar establishments in the Phoenix-area? Or your favorite servers and bartenders?
Last week, Governor Ducey issued an executive order, part of which required restaurants in counties with a confirmed case of the coronavirus to provide only dine-out options and closure of bars.
An employment attorney says workers who are laid off and even those who are temporarily furloughed have the same option moving forward.
Now, a "virtual tip jar" has been started to help support local servers and bartenders across the Phoenix-area who are out of work.
A Google document was created, listing bars, restaurants, and clubs, along with employee's names and their digital payment usernames, so people could continue supporting their favorite bars and staff. To help out, click here.
La Piñata Mexican Restaurant in Phoenix is helping their employees with a fundraising effort where all proceeds will go towards their staff.
