What is the Minimum Wage in Texas?The minimum wage in Texas is currently $7.25 per hour. This is the minimum wage set by the federal government. Some states or cities may require that employers pay more than $7.25 an hour, but Texas has not done this. If you are not receiving at least $7.25 per hour, the current minimum wage, contact our Dallas minimum wage attorneys today.
Employers Often Fail to Pay Minimum WagedIt is common for employers to make mistakes and fail to pay the required minimum wage. For example, some employers require employees to show up to work 30 minutes early to prepare for the shift without allowing the employee to clock-in. It is also unlawful for an employer to pay commissioned employees an amount that is less than minimum wage.
Sadly, some employers prey on employee who are not educated in the law, minority workers, non-citizens, and undocumented workers. All employees, even "illegal immigrants" are entitled to the minimum wage. If you are not being paid minimum wage, contact our Dallas minimum wage attorneys today.
