Job Ages, Wages & Rules


Minimum Wage

The Federal minimum wage is $7.25 per hour effective July 24, 2009.  Many states also have minimum wage laws, which can vary compared to Federal guidelines.  In cases where an employee is subject to both State and Federal minimum wage laws, the employee is entitled to the higher minimum wage.

Wages can vary according to type of job, especially summer jobs, such as camp counselors.  Make sure to check with the state guidelines where you are seeking employment.
