    There is / are no minimum wage...

    There is/are no minimum wage or qualifications for those applying for the performing artiste work permit.

    Which verb should I use?

    I think 'is' because, I believe, the subject is 'wage'.

    Thanks.

    Since minimum wage and qualifications are two completely different things, I would say "There are no qualifications required and there is no minimum wage".
