Waitressing wages. Are these bar and restaurant businesses getting away with slave labor? [View all]

One of my daughters roommates in the Boston area only made $400 last month. That didn't include tips, but it doesn't sound like she makes a lot there either, since some nights she came home with nothing. My daughter saw a week's pay stub, and the girl only made 8 dollars. I know this girl and she has a lot of personality and is very athletic so it's not a question of not working hard enough.

What laws allow a company to pay below minimum wage?
