how can i be paid 125 dollars a week for a 40 hour work week?

I just landed a job at a day camp, where i will be paid 125 dollars a week. I will work 8-4, 5 days a week. Why do I only get paid 3 dollars an hour and how is this legal!

BTW, Canada is now 10.25$/hour :) Of course you can since you got paid 125$ a week, but is it illegal, thats depends on the industry you're in, your age and conditions of your employment. Check with your local employment equity office to find out more.

If it is a "formal" job (note the quotes), then it is illegal due to minimum wage requirements. If you live in Canada, the min wage is $10/hr. I would talk to your camp managers about this. before taking legal action with a lawyer.

Are you being supplied with housing, food, or anything else as part of your pay? Taxes been deducted before you get paid? If so, figure out what that adds to your pay. If it is still below minimum wage talk to your supervisor or find out which Government agency in your State you need to complain to.
