A company employs a 15 year-old for four hours a day and pays him $25.00 in cash ($6.25 per hour). The company is in Quebec where the official minimum wage is $8.50 per hour. Is the company allowed to pay the student that much lower than the standard minimum wage? Is there a student minimum wage in Canada?
