  • Automobile Mechanic California

    Hello, I recently read on this forum about an industry specific labor law in which if an automobile mechanic provides his or her own tools, the minimum wage is increased from $8 to $16 (or doubled). I tried to find the article on: http://www.dir.ca.gov/DLSE/dlse.html however was unsuccessful in finding it. If anyone reading this knows the page or how to find it, can you share it with me please?

    The following is from the CA-DLSE manual.

    http://www.dir.ca.gov/dlse/Manual-Instructions.htm

    45.5.7 Tools. When tools or equipment are required by the employer or are necessary to the performance of a job, such tools and equipment shall be provided and maintained by the employer, except that an employee whose wages are at least two (2) times the minimum wage provided herein may be required to provide and maintain hand tools and equipment customarily required by the trade or craft. This subsection (B) shall not apply to apprentices regularly indentured under the State Division of Apprenticeship Standards.

      Thank you very much DAW. I am not personally affected by this law however three of my co-workers are and should be receiving a pay raise in the near future. Especially one who needs the raise. He was told that he needs to buy more tools in order to get a raise, except he only makes $10.50/hr (non flat-rate).
