is this company lying?

I just started work for a store that is pretty popular around my area and my current wage is $6.75 - the Tennessee minimum wage is $7.25...they said I'd be paid min wage. I asked hr and they said that they are considered a "private company" or something like that. What is up with this?


  • Seems like this company, despite its popularity, is doing something illegal...very much so.There is no such thing as what they're defending themselves with. I'd take the tub of your most recent check to your local DOL and tell them about your situation, and hopefully they'll assist you in resolving the matter and ensuring this company returns to the legal way to run things.
