I work at a salon. I am paid by hour & by commission. I reception part time at the salon & I get paid hourly for that. I am also paid hourly for the duration of every service I do on top of commission for said services. I also get commission for sale of merchandise. Business fluctuates so there is base wage at the salon, it is roughly what you get paid doing 40hrs work of work on min. wage(8.75/hr). The issue though is that I get paid every 2 weeks and each pay period is 80hrs of work, but the base wage only covers 40hrs of work. Which means I work for 160hrs every month but only get paid for half When I calculate my hourly wage from my gross pay it is way below min. wage. I signed a contract in order to work there, would this contract still be valid even if it violates min. wage law?
