Illegal workers must make minimum wage
A response to one of the complaints I made to BOLI:
The Wage and Hour Division does not take into account an employee's status, but rather that any employee in Oregon, unless otherwise exempt, is paid the current Oregon minimum wage of $7.50 per hour, and applicable overtime pay.
However, if you would like to file a complaint that employees are notreceiving check stubs, which this office has jurisdiction over, the Complaint Form is found under Wage and Hour, from our main website www.oregon.gov/boli. You may complete the form anonymously if you like by simply not placing your name on the form. Send to the Portland Office for processing.
What does it take? Does a worker have to be holding a sign stating that he is illegal? Oh wait...
