"I don't think my boss is paying me minimum wage. But he fired the last guy who complained about his hourly pay rate. I don't want to rock the boat - I can't afford to lose my job."
Massachusetts employers must pay $8.00 per hour for work. There are very few exceptions to this rule:
Tipped and Service Employees - these employees can earn $2.63 per
hour, as long as they earn at least $20.00 per month in tips and their
Employer follows the Tip Pooling Statute.
Employees in training - Persons in training can be paid less than
minimum wage, if their employer follows specific guidelines.
