Can my employer legally pay me below minimum wage?
I got a job as a pizza delivery driver, it's a local pizzeria store that isn't well known. The manager said, they start off $5.15 for new employees. But I thought the Fair Labor Standards Act changed the wage to $7.25 back in 2009?

Your job receives tips. As long as your tips plus your hourly wage equal or exceed the federal minimum wage it's legal.
