    Jane Fonda, Sarah Jessica Parker, Reese Witherspoon and Natalie Portman are urging New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo to raise the wage made by tipped workers.

    Sixteen actresses including Jane Fonda, Sarah Jessica Parker, Reese Witherspoon and Natalie Portman are urging New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo to raise the wage made by tipped workers.

    The women signed onto a letter to the Democratic governor as his administration examines whether to eliminate the subminimum wage paid to restaurant servers and other workers who make tips.

    Parker co-starred with Cuomo's primary opponent, Cynthia Nixon, on "Sex and the City."

    The actresses invoked the #TimesUp hashtag and wrote that relying on tips forces many workers to endure widespread sexual harassment.
