Many people are under the impression that an employer can get away with paying undocumented workers less than the minimum wage. In California, undocumented workers have the same protections as documented workers under the labor laws. This means undocumented workers are entitled to the minimum wage, overtime pay, and freedom from retaliation and discrimination by their employers for exercising their rights.
