There are seven states with no restaurants [View all]

The federal minimum wage law has a loophole big enough to drive a serving cart through: tip credit. Because waitstaff receives gratuities from guests, the feds allow restaurant owners to pay the workers less than minimum. Ask any restaurant owner and he'll tell you: you couldn't survive in this business without tip credit.

This is why there are no restaurants in Alaska, California, Minnesota, Montana, Nevada, Oregon or Washington, the seven states that don't allow tip credit.
