How does the pay work?
What should I do if my boss refuses to pay me OT? I asked my boss about the new overtime law yesterday and he said he doesn’t know anything about that. I work for a small company so the only other person I can ask is the owner but he’s never around. Do employers have certain amount of time to pay employee OT under the new laws? How does that work?
I have been at my current job since 2010! I started at $7.50 per hour, now up to $10.35! Since our company was merged with another company it has gone down hill! First they cut my hours and took away my health benefits! I had to go on medicaid! Now they have stopped giving breaks and lunches even though I work 8-9 hour shifts! I am 62 and being on my feet for that long without anything to drink is torture!!! I went to HR to complain, I was brought into managers office and basically reprimanded for calling, and as retaliation I was taken off my regular job at customer servce, which I love and waited 4 years to work up to! When I confronted my manager about this retaliation, she just said " Well I was very mad" I am collecting my social security, lost my medicaid, and need this job to survive!!!

It was cool at first until they gave us mandatory overtime . Everybody was upset but was willing to discuss options . They made it seem like we were going to vote and then all of a sudden it was decided for us . It went fro 6 am -230 pm to 4:00 am-230pm. No extended lunch just a extra 10 mins break . Like what's that going to do for us.? We got treated like children . They kept yelling time on station which means because their asses were on the hot seat for falling behind on orders we couldn't barely even get water . It was close to a sweat shop . You have to bust your ass for months to even consider a pay increase . They play music all day but it's not decided by the workers . It's decided by the people who are supervisors who don't do anything but sit down . How is that fair ? You can't have your cell phone or you will get fired . I wouldn't suggest this job for anyone at all if you have real bills to pay
I am 38 years old. I graduated with my BS in Criminal Justice in 2012. I have applied for many related positions (probation/parole, case management), even a paid internship with ICE. Unfortunately, I have had no luck. Is it my age? How can I gain experience in a field that I have studied after working so hard to earn a degree? (P.S. I'm now in grad school majoring in public administration.)
I've worked for a nonprofit working with adults with disabilities for nearly 5 years now, and I have gained valuable case management experience through all my years there, but I need more...a higher salary, security, the ability to save and purchase a home.

Legal or illegal?
I was at my job for about 2 months but in that short time I really impressed my Gm and during the holidays a lot of people did no call no shows and we're fired so my job was low on employees. My Gm asked if I would want to be a manager I said yes and he updated my restrictions in the system so that I had manager access for things such as the safe for shift changes and the cash drawer for shift changes or returns and things like that that only a manager could do and not a regular employee. I wasn't trained like most managers because of the short handed staff we had because of the holidays as I mentioned so I instantly had my own shift to run and had to learn as I went if I ran into something I couldn't do I had to call the help desk and try and figure it out with them. Anyway I learned quick and had no problems running my own shifts and got my gm out of a tuff spot and gave him time to hire new employees. But I was to keep my shifts and stay manager but hadn't received my raise. The minimum a manager makes was a dollar more then what I was making. My boss told me he had to get it approved threw corporate but that I would get my raise soon. Well I ran my own shifts as manager for 6 weeks before I told my boss what's going on with my raise. By then he had hired new employees and new managers and could get my shifts covered so he put me on a different shift where I was not the manager and told me it was just for a week or 2 till I get my raise and then I would get my own shifts again. He said he was doing it to be fair to me and so that I wouldn't have more responsibility on my shifts that I wasn't getting paid for and that once it got fixed I would even get back pay for the 6 weeks I worked as manager and didn't get paid as one. Well before I got my raise I was fired for calling and saying I was gonna be an hour late because my son was hurt at school during recess and had to pick him up. I just received my last check and it did not have my back pay for the 6 weeks I was a manager and did not get paid as one. Is that legal or is there something I can do about it?
