prevailing wage for a 1099 consultant


I worked as a 1099 consultant for 6 days for a start up company. On my last day of work, I offered a letter of resignation along with a invoice of 750 to my boss.

After waitng for 2 weeks I sent emails to the CEO politely requesting my prevailing wage. He replied back by stating: ''Your contract said that you were to be paid $3800+ every month. It did not say anything about a daily payment. You were also a 1099 consultant, NOT a employee. Finally, the contract said that you would make ''best efforts'', which you did not. We do not owe you anything.''

What should I do? Do I have a case?

I was advised to file a report in a small claims court. what evidence should I begin to the small claims court?
