The idea that a worker should receive the agreed-upon wage for a day’s work seems like the simplest possible concept in labor law. Still, employers sometimes try to skirt the law by refusing to pay the required overtime rate or minimum wage. Unlike some states, Texas has not raised the minimum hourly pay rate beyond the federal standard of $7.25.
