Am I Entitled to the Minimum Wage?


When, how, and how much you are paid depend on federal and state law.



Federal law sets some wage standards, including a "floor" minimum wage, but many states have also enacted their own wage payment laws. Where those laws are more generous to the employee than the federal law, they apply. Where they are less generous, the federal law applies.   To learn more about your state's minimum wage rules, enter your zip code or click on your state.
