Should I be paid prevailing wage in CA?

Windsor, CA |

The company does work thru energy efficiency measures. The different programs that pay us get their funding from the CPUC or PG+E. The company gets paid by how much they save the customers, any where from $600.00- tens of thousands.

Currently we get paid hourly, less than prev. wage.
These jobs aren't up for bids. The company sends out salesmen.

We also have to carry their stuff in our truck and don't get mileage or pay for a 60mile radius to and from home.
I don't want to lose this job until I have another one.

  1. No, there is no such legal requirement (unless you are applying for H1-B immigration status or something). The employer is only required to pay you minimum wage under California law.
