In almost all industries you cannot be paid on a daily salary basis and not be subject to minimum wage and overtime provisions. If you are working more than 40 hours in a week you are probably entitled to overtime pay. If you are not receiving at least minimum wage you are probably entitled to the difference up to minimum wage.
I would have to know more about your situation to be more specific. You can contact my office to discuss your situation at [email protected] and obtain more information on my website at http://kielichlawfirm.com
