  • Question about salary pay

    I live in Junction City Kansas. Last November I accepted a job driving a toter, pulling moble homes for a company in Ogden Kansas, about 15 min. away. The owner told me he would pay me a salary of $350 a week, regardless of how many days I work. I happidly took the job because at the time I was pulling a dump trailer, and that day I was losing pay due to weather. So I figured that a set income each week would be great, especially considering winter hadn't even set in yet. I was there for three weeks, and on Thanksgiving week, I found out that he lowered the pay down to $70 a day, not $350 a week. I am wondering if this is legal? I just recently quit this job because of a major disagreement, at which time he has already given me a raise to $400/$80 a day. Needless to say, I am having a royal problem getting my last check from him. To give you a character description of the owner and his wife, they tend to get revenge on anyone who quits them. For example, I found out after I got hired, one of the drivers before me purchased a toter of his own and started his own business. During my employment there, I have seen the boss and his wife try to hurt the guy's business just because he quit. I have met the guy personally quite a few times and found out that he doesn't do anything to these people, he just runs his own business. Upon finding out how they are, I already knew I would be running into problems with them. The only laws I found are for managers and upper class people. Please tell me there are laws somewhere that would protect regular laborors and truck drivers.
    Thank you, Edwin
