My first thought is that you apparently don't know that all tipped employees in the entire USA are ALREADY making at least the same minimum wage as every other min wage employee -- often MORE. In a growing number of states the employer is now required to budget the entire minimum wage as salary and allow tipped employees to take home (or split) their tips.
In most states, however, they can let the tipped employees report how much they made in tips and then credit some of that toward the min wage the employer would have otherwise had to fund directly.
In any case, tips are always optional, by definition. If everyone were to simply stop tipping, the employers would quickly figure out how to adequately compensate the tipped employees who are worth having around. If they have to raise the menu prices a bit, who cares? Many of you were already willing to pay as much as 20 percent more as a tip.
