    What state are you in? Are you a minor? What kind of work do you do? How long have you worked for this employer? What kind of business is it?

      Im in Texas, no i am not a minor, im 21. it is a tanning salon. we did get commission off lotion but only 10% and it never added up to the min wage with our 4.50 and commission and hour. I would only make about 6$ a month on commission, if that.

        Sorry for all the questions, I just wanted to make sure you or the business did not fall under some type of exception for a training wage or the business not being subject.

        I would immediately file a claim for unpaid wages with the Texas Workforce Commission. I'm not sure how long you worked there, but they do have a statute of limitations for filing.
