The minimum wage is $4.10 per hour for most employees in Puerto Rico, with exceptions for tipped employees, some student workers, and other exempt occupations. "
IS this not correct? it says that federal minimum wage takes precedent.? if not how is this not right? also
the "work exchange" I mentioned is 4 hours a day 6 days a week... could that position not be considered "seasonal'? which would be exempt to minimum wage.. ?? because the position is actual seasonal.. :
http://www.minimum-wage.org/minimum-wage-exemptions.asp ( first paragraph )
I see that all the positions that have exemptions are for positions that require the "employee" to just sit around alot of time.. like baby sitters, movie employees etc etc.. which is exactly what the employees do that I have 90% of the time they are simply sitting there doing nothing..
