  • I make below minimum wage. Why?

    First of all, let me just say this may be a dumb question. I'm new to the job world. 

    I'm 16. I work as a teacher-like counselor at an Education Center in New York. I make $9.25 an hour even though minimum wage here is $11.10. Honestly, I don't want to ask my boss about it, for this is my first job and I don't know how to not sound like an asshole while doing it.

    I was hoping the wisdom of some of you guys will be able to educate me. Is it because I'm still a student or something?
