Do sales commissions figure into minimum wage?

I get paid a monthly salary of $1100 for 40 hrs per week. I receive commissions every month for new sales. Do the commissions count as part of the minimum wage obligation of my employer?

Commissions earnings are properly included for minimum wage calculation in the work week in which they were earned. If they were earned evenly over the course of the month, they can be allocated evenly to the work weeks in that month.
