It looks like you didn't break the federal minimum wage law, Dada.  It's $5.85/hr for another month or so.

It said non-exempt....I wonder who's exempt from minimum wage?

Taxi drivers...  people who get tips...  things of that nature.

Well, he was sending a press release to the feds, so thought he might be trying for fed lawbreaking on minimum wage, too.

Looks like Dave will be in and out of town, so that's why the delay until September.

Anyone who works primarily for tips (bartenders, wait staff).

As a general rule, "FLSA exempt" means salaried managers don't get overtime pay. There are specific exemptions for nurses and firefighters, who work non-traditional hours and might be subject to being on call.
