    The minimum wage is $8.25 to 10.15$ in Illinois city. If you mention your country or state I will try to find out for you.

    I am increasingly impressed with Missnancyalex's ability to find good web pages
    The trouble with opportunity is it normally comes dressed up as work.

    Thanks Blurock & Missnancyalex, I have checked both these sites.

    The problem it is not clear as to which sector\industry they fall into! and the few people I spoke to that own car washes have all told me its abit of a grey area!

    The minimum wage determination made by DoL does specifically refer to the commercial washing of vehicles (or close enough for me to suggest it's not worth playing with fire on this one)... The minimum rate prescribed is not really that unreasonable to my mind.

    I actually did a little research into this yesterday (hence me being so impressed with Missnancy's find). Google has a pretty well ranked link to the relevant minimum wage determination doccie, but the particular gazetted notice linked to was rather dated. However, I'm fairly sure the scope wouldn't have changed significantly in the past few years, just the minimum rate. I ran out of time to hunt down a more recent notice.

    The other interesting thing is the collective agreement via bargaining council only applies to KZN. The rest of the country is covered by a minimum wage determination.
