I am moving this question to the employment and labor section because workers' compensation section concerns injuries in the workplace. You should certainly both be getting at least minimum wage with housing value and providing you a room may not be enough. The employer also should report their share of federal taxes and unemployment taxes to the federal government and to the State of Texas. You likely can file for unemployment and improper termination. I would recommend you talk with an employment lawyer.
The question is still under wc for some reason so I will also attempt to move it.
In answering though you should be getting paid a minimum of minimum hourly wage. The value of your room can be used in calculating that amount. In other words if your room is valued at $40 a day and you work 8 hours a day, you would be owed the amount of money that would be sufficient to pay the rest of your wages, less the $40 value. I will also post a link to the Pay Day Act for you. Good luck.
I am hopeful my answer is "HELPFUL" and/or is a good answer?" If so, I would appreciate you for noting same. Thank you. The information contained herein is not to be construed as legal advice.
