Can you get paid more than minimum wage if you are under 18?
In NYC, I am looking for a job or paid internship.

Of course you can. I started working at 15 and NEVER made minimum wage.

Yes, but you probably have to work there long enough to get a raise. I'm sure there are jobs that will pay you more than minimum wage anyway, but it's not gonna be a McDonald's job

If your employer is willing to pay more, sure. There's nothing in the minimum wage laws that prevents an employer from paying you more than that.
