    Attorneys general in over a dozen states including Connecticut oppose a federal Department of Labor proposal to let employers control the tips of some hourly employees.

    The attorneys general filed comments in opposition with federal officials on Monday.

    The plan applies to employees paid the federal minimum wage, which is $7.75 an hour. In Illinois, about half a million workers could be affected.

    Attorneys general in the following states and the District of Columbia oppose the plan: California, Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New York, North Carolina, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Washington, Vermont and Virginia.
