You should only be paid what you can prove you’re worth.
Not some amount you imagine, or some imposed minimum wage just because you are alive, sucking air and capable of reproducing.
Get an education, learn a skill; go to work. If you consistently prove you are worth something; you will be compensated based upon the value of your contributions.
If you think you are worth more; explain your value to the boss and ask politely for a reasonable raise.
If you don’t get it, work harder, follow instructions and rules, be on time ready to work, get more training and education, be a pleasant helpful worker. Ask what you are not now doing, or what you can do better.
If that doesn’t work, apply elsewhere immediately and effectively for a better job.
When you get a better job; quit the old one and move on politely.
Another word or two about Minimum Wage laws; they are unwise, destructive, erode self esteem, and one way or another are a false indication of a workers' or a jobs' actual value.
Individuals have the right to work for free; if they want. Or for some amount of money they agree to, or for food, housing or medical care, or training and experience, or to help others, or just for fun; if they wish.
Government decided wages leads to Government decided prices; then to Government decided everything; what you wear, what you eat, where you live, when you work, what you do, if you get medical care, if you get a car or a coat and what color it will be, who you can be seen with and what you can say in public and in private.
You won’t like it.
