I live in Michigan and work for a company as a "part-time" employee. I have been putting in 43-55 hrs /week for over 3 years now which is the same or more than all the full-time employees work at this company. Are they within the law to still have me as a part-time employee? Are they allowed to deny me the same things the full-time employees get when I do the same job and work just as many hours? I obviously don't want to cause problems where I work.. but it seems wrong to me and the few people I've asked as friends of mine.
