I originally didn't notice the decrease because I was getting overtime hours but then the store manager suddenly without notice began giving me part-time hours even though he said he was going to keep me working 40 hours a week.
Once I noticed I wasn't making as much as I used to I went and checked my pay rate information (After being told how to do so by an fellow employee) and found out my pay got decreased by .50 which isn't a lot but when you are making minimum wage to begin with it really hurts. I have been going through some tough times and barely able to pay bills whilst having to borrow money from family and I talked with the store manager multiple times on getting more hours and his solution was to send me to a fellow Walgreens on my days off from that Walgreens that is about an hour drive away from the Walgreens I work at.
Now I don't have enough money to pay the gas to get there and honestly the amount I get paid isn't really worth the drive and wear and tear on my car and I told him explicitly that I don't want to work at that other Walgreens since I wouldn't be getting home until midnight every night and then he schedules me at 8 am the next morning.
I did some investigating to find out where my hours went and found out he is giving a part-time female worker 40+ hours when in reality she should be getting the 19-24 hours that he is giving me.
I am wondering if it is legal for him to go and decrease my pay rate without notifying me or having me sign and agree to the new pay rate. I am also wondering if you are a full-time employee isn't the store manager required to give you full-time hours so you don't lose your benefits? I am on the profit-sharing plan, health/medical plan etc. That Walgreens gives to it's full-time employees and I don't really want to lose those benefits because someone unfit to be a manager is screwing with me.
