In GA, I guess the minimum wage raised up to $7.00 per hour. But I also noticed that working for those Asian Markets, or Asian wholesaler stores, they still pay less than minimum wages to their staffs. From my one time visit to a Chinese supermarket. The cashier told me that her hourly pay is around $5.30 to $6.00. That is not right. If you encountered such situation, would you report it to a government agency?

The minimum wage where I am, which is CA, is $8.00 I have not come across anyone paying less then. If I were to I would not myself report it but i would encourage the employees to do so.

well, that is right. Some people gotta do something about it. The problem is, the employee might be afraid of retaliation of the employers.

My state has minimum wages uptill 50rs per day and i think that is less but we cannot help this amount is for the people who are least literate but if a person is highly literate then his per day payment goes above 500rs to 600rs which is quite high as compared to my country.
