Workplace Rights!

You have the right to be paid for your work!

  • The right to receive at least the minimum wage for each hour of work—$7.25 per hour.
  • The right to receive overtime pay—time and a half for each hour over 40 hours worked in a week.
  • The right to be paid for your work regardless of immigration status.
  • If your employer terminates your employment, the right to receive your final pay within 24 hours.

Remember: This doesn’t mean that the minimum wage is a reasonable wage for all types of work.
