KANSAS CITY, Mo. -Unauthorized aliens may collect minimum and overtime wages under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) because that federal law "does not allow employers to exploit any employee's immigration status or to profit from hiring unauthorized aliens in violation of federal law," the Eighth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals ruled July 29 (Elmer Lucas, et al. v. Jerusalem Cafe, LLC, et al., No. 12-2170, 8th Cir.; 2013 U.S. App. LEXIS 15320).
