  • Flag HRS for Mechanics & Minimum Wage Tennessee Tennessee Tennessee

    Can anyone please tell me if there is a minimum wage for automotive technicians? Is it legal for a mechanic to get paid "flag hours" only, possibly not adding up to minimum wage even? I am required to provide my own tools and have heard that there may be laws that say this makes minimum wage higher for me and that if I am at work and "waiting to be engaged" while work is slow than I should be paid. I was just moved to "commission/ flag hours" at a rate I feel is very low, and right before Christmas

    If anyone can help me understand the laws in Tennessee regarding this I would REALLY appreciate it. If it matters, this is a car dealership that sells some cars to individuals and some wholesale.

    Thanks!

    There is a federal law (FLSA) which says that you must be paid at least minimum wage (on average) for all hours worked in the work week. This law applies to all 50 states.
