How much do you get paid full time at a minimum wage job in California?

I'm looking for a job and wanting to go to college. On average, how much money would I get every two weeks if I work full time? Or is this something I would have to talk about with the company?

    The minimum wage in California is $8.00 per hour.

    To figure your biweekly pay, multiply $8.00 by the number of hours that you work every two weeks.

    It's $8.00 per hour, but lower for certain work groups. The President is trying to get the rate raised to $9.00.
