    I hate to say this, but if you flash just 3 phones a week total after work and on days off you would double your pay. 3 x $35=$105. Put an ad on craiglists.

  2. Remove this advertisement.

    Ill chip in, are you getting 1099 Forms from this so called employer ? If not, take some legal action.
    You either get 1099 Forms
    Or your an employee..

    In either case you have options
    Option A) Set your flash price higher and demand a certain amount a week or no flashing for them and you will undercut there prices in there market sense A) you do there flashing anyway.

    Option B) If you are not paid on a 1099 Form you are a legal employee and they must pay you a min wage of $7.50 an +- in your state. Either way at the rate you are paid its only $2.50 an hour and thats illegal, you can higher a lawyer and win that case + pain and suffering easily.

    when you go to the unemployment office, make it clear to them that you are not employed by cricket or anyone else that is giving you a tax form at the end of the year. Tell them that you only do odd jobs for cash (even at the cricket store). I have not read the entire unemployment rules. There may be a certain low amount of income you can say you make and still qualify for unemployment money. Read the rules before going. good luck.

    That is an absolute embarrassment for him as an employer!!

    Even if you are getting paid on a 1099, then you still have a case as an "Employee". Especially since he sets the hours and you have to work them.

    I would assume he is paying you a base plus commission. This is LEGAL so long as both together equal the minimum wage totals. Are you making about $200 a week in commission? He is also required to pay you overtime for any hours over 40. He cannot claim commission is that compensation. If you are not making at least $290.00 a week based on federal minimum wage, then you can sue him for all he is worth and make his life a serious hell!

    You can start the process by contacting you local EEOC office and file a complaint. Usually, that is all it takes, however, sometimes you have to do more.
