Where do you work!? Unless it's a place that pays you less than minimum wage because of tips, or a place where the minimum wage is less than $6 an hour; what happened is illegal. Check your pay stub, they may not have logged all your hours.

Did you have a pay advance you still owed? start a 401k? child support? somehow those numbers don't add up. I worked 140 in two weeks and 1000 was taken out for various legit reasons but it was still a shock to me. definitely check pay stub and make sure right hours and right pay. don't ever quietly accept a pay cut without getting a reason for it

$6 an hour doesn't even account got taxes! What??

Check if all your hours make sense!

There is a pay class of hourly workers that are exempted from the time and a half rule. It’s generally reserved for entry level professional jobs though. Basically it’s like salary where you are guaranteed 40 hours of pay a week, but you get paid straight time for overtime. No 1.5x multiplier, just 1.0x for overtime. It’s quite common for entry level engineers to be paid using that system. Once they get enough raises and experience they are usually switched to traditional salary as the overtime pay becomes overly expensive for the company.

Most other countries which use a variation of dollars also have a minimum wage (such as Ontario Canada which has a minimum wage of $14) or the cost of living is lower which reduces the FML significantly (unless it is the Bahamas).

Everyone it Is possible op is getting paid minimum wage. This was probably their paycheck after taxes were taken out. They may have it set up to have the most of their taxes taken out or they may have insurance being pulled. That being said it’s illegal to give you a pay cut without notifying you ahead of time. You should contact hr.

Actually, no. Even at minimum wage their pay would be higher than that. Plus the fact that working that many hours would require overtime to be paid, which would raise their pay higher.

85 hours in a single week with anything after 40 paid a time and a half...

Hold, on. Math isn't my strong suit. Carry the one, add the decimal, divide by lunch and subtract three red hats....

If you're making U.S. federal minimum wage, they are taking out about $275 in taxes and other deductions.
