Wages, or salary, is the compensation received for work.

Tiered minimum wage

In 2013 Washington D.C. proposed requiring large profitable retailers such as Walmart pay a higher minimum wage.[1]

Interns

Firms engaged in creative work often offer unpaid internships to young people and recent graduates. This practice discriminates against workers without the funds to work for free and violates minimum wage laws.[2][3]
