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.
