  • Min. wage in Michigan

    My son started working at one of the national burger chain outlets here in Michigan. The minimum wage here is $7.40/hr., however he is being paid $7.10/hr. When he questioned it, he was told it was because he was under 18. He explained that he was indeed 18 years old. He was then told it was because he was a "trainee." Is this in accordance with Michigan law? If so, how long can they continue to pay him the "trainee" wage?

    Thanks,
    his dad

    Hi, his dad.

    Yes, for 90 days or until he turns 19, whichever comes first; see here:
