MIAMI – A driver for a Chinese restaurant alleges he is not paid a minimum wage.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that he worked for more than 40 hours without being paid minimum wage or overtime wage. The plaintiff holds Wong Chong's Happy Days Restaurant Inc., doing business as Far East Cafe; De-Wong; and Wong responsible because the defendants allegedly failed to properly compensate the plaintiff and misclassified him as an independent contractor.
