  • Not being paid minimum wage??? Pennsylvania

    I work in a small pizza shop and work only around 15 hours a week. I get paid $5.65/hr. There arent any full time workers so I know minimum wage is different but still think it should be more. What should the min be and what can i do about it?

    We'll assume the FLSA applies - rarely doesn't. (Your employer needs to have gross annual sales of at least $500,000 and/or engage in interstate commerce.)

    How old are you? (Are you a youth worker)
    Are you a full-time student?
    Do you get any tips?
    How long have you worked there - over 90 days?
    Thanks.

      Bigger problem. Minimum wage in Pennsylvania is $7.15.
      I don't respond to Private Messages unless the moderator specifically refers you to me for that purpose. Thank you.

        Pennsylvania does have a youth training wage, but it is the Federal minimum wage ($5.85) and it must increase to the State's mimimum wage on the 20th birthday or after 60 days, whichever is earlier.

          Isn't it $6.65 for small PA employers until July 1, 2008?

            You're right, again.

              We still don't know what wage OP should be paid. We don't know for sure they are a youth or that the business qualifies as a small employer.

              However, it seems they are not being paid enough per hour in Pa. no matter what. jessie13- (You're not age 13 are you?) You might want to put in a claim with your state's DOL for underpaid wages.

              Hopefully, the FLSA applies.
