Min..wage.

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
What is the min.wage in your state? OK so I found this job on Craig'slist for cashier. I called them up and the manager said I can come for interview. So I get there and its a deli and I talked to the manage/owner and he said I can start on Monday,from 10am to 10 pm and I remember him saying 9.50 ok 9.50. So I assumed he was paying me 9.50$ HR. And he did tell me you will get lots of hrs. So I started on Monday thinking its 12 hrs, nope I worked only 3 hrs they tell me to go home and come back at 5. I was like ok so I get there at five and left at 6:30 and the same thing the next day.so on Wednesday u asked him is this my hrs he says oh no only for training so I said ok again. Gave me the day off Thursday. Friday worked 2 hrs and and paid me the dame week I started cash. Guess how much they gave me almost 70$ for the whole week. I finally asked im how much am I getting paid? He tells me 6$ n HR. For now. Wtf. I was in shock I didn't say anything. Min.wage here is 7.40 and you pay 6$ that's bull shit. Bc its not worth of me even going back BC the state helps with day care and whatever state don't pay u have to pay out of my pocket.which is no big deal if I was making decent money.now the daycare lady asked for her 126 that I have to pay out of my pocket and of course I have to figure out how to pay her this week. And I asked couple of people about this and they said what he is doing its alligal to pay you less then min wage.is this true? Im supposed to go back to work tomorrow and honeslty im not planning to go back its just not worth it. Thx for reading rent over LOL

Quoting PinkHart:

Did you make sure he took out taxes? If not that's gonna cost you come next tax season. Even for training he has to pay you at least min wage.

if she is making min wage,and is on state aid, that $60 isn't going to impact her taxes at all.

If she stays and continues to be paid like that, she'll be responsible for paying in her own taxes.

I'm assuming that she will be smarter then staying at a place like that.


I was told that you would only need to report income over $600 on taxes.  Could be wrong, because I've never had to do that, but I was in a clinical trial through my OB and I had to fill out W2 but was told taxes would only be withheld if I stayed in the trial long enough to make more then $600 a year.

 You still deserve to be treated with respect. This is not just poor management but illegal! I hope you find something better soon!

Oh no I quit I didn't go in today. I called his cell phone couple of time to let him know but it kept going to voice mail so I txt him and the deli is closed on Sundays.
