Not All Workers are Entitled to the Minimum Wage – Part II
The following are part of a class of workers who are not entitled to the minimum wage:
Casual babysitters – People who baby sit every once in a while (on an as-needed basis) are not entitled to the minimum wage.
Young workers – If you are younger than 20, the minimum wage rules are different. Your employer can pay you less than the minimum wage for your first 90 days on the job. After that, however, you are entitled to the minimum wage regardless of your age (unless, of course, you fall into one of the other exemptions).
Seasonal and recreational workers – If you work for an establishment that is seasonal and recreational, then you may be exempt from the minimum wage. This exemption applies to places such as amusement parks that operate only during summer months.
