Alabama PSA: 60 Seconds
I'm the United States Secretary of Labor, Hilda Solis, with an important message.
A new law in Alabama may have created some confusion about your rights.
But here are the facts.
Regardless of Alabama law, you have the right to be paid the federal minimum wage of seven dollars and twenty five cents for every hour you have worked.
Tipped workers, like in restaurants, have to be paid at least two dollars and thirteen cents an hour plus enough tips to make the full minimum wage.
For farm workers, your wages must be paid on time.
Your employer must provide your terms of employment in writing.
And, if your employer provides you housing or transportation, it must be safe.
Remember: You have all of these rights regardless of your immigration status.
We're here to help.
