  1. If you have some specific knowledge about this, please explain, but I thought that the DOL website you refer to here says almost the opposite. It states that there is a Federal minimum wage, and that in any state whose specific minimum wage laws pay less than the Federal amount, the higher amount of the two will be paid. "Note: Where Federal and state law have different minimum wage rates, the higher standard applies."
     

  2. Thats one thing in Aus. tipping is not a big thing here. so for those sorts of jobs our minimum wage would be higher. Which I guess is good for the workers kinda, but I'd say customer service is probably generally better in the US because of it. At least in some cases.
     
  3. Dazzlarr, what criteria determines what level in a non-apprentice job a worker is?
     
  4. Minimum wage my line of work is around $40,000. Although amatuers with low-profile targets will do similar, albeit lower level work for $1000.
     
  5. thats a bit of bs really. but level 1 is really avg kinda job. Like washing dishes and you have no experience or something.

    Its a bit of a wank though.

    so basically 12-16$ is minimimum wage depending ont he type of work. and if you have any experience at all.
     
  6. Right, but as I understand by looking at the picture and reading the little words, states with a lower or nonexistent minimum wage law than the Federal minimum still have to pay the greater amount.

    That's it. I'm done repeating myself. No offense. <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/pitlane/emoticons/smile.gif"></A> Maybe I misread you too.
     
  7. Cool I'm from Zurich. Where do you live now?
     
  8. No. If a state doesn't have a minimum wage or they have a lower one than the federal one, employers have to go by the federal minimum wage, which is $5.15. You can't get paid less than that no matter which state you live in.
     
  9. $7.15 USD in Connecticut.
