so I've been working at this pizzeria for around 3 months now, should I wait another month or 2 before asking for a raise?
i only work two days a week and one of those shifts is only 5 hours while the other is 7 hours.
i make minimum wage, so what would be a reasonable amount when I eventually do ask?

First, you must line up a job somewhere else that pays more, or if it pays the same minimum, it is closer to you, or it has better working conditions, or it offers more learning opportunity, or some other such advantage. Then you can give notice and offer to stay--for a raise. That way, you are bargaining with something, rather than with nothing.
Be prepared to follow through and change jobs if the boss says no, however. The way to win is NOT to "bluff".
In this economy, however, the sad truth is that you may be doing the best you can and asking for a raise is simply not feasible.0
