“Can my employer lower my pay starting two weeks ago, without telling me?”

Sklover Working Wisdom

Harrisville, West Virginia. In your state of West Virginia, you can file a Request for Assistance form with the West Virginia Division of Labor. Be mindful, though, that your boss might just turn around and in retaliation fire you if you either (a) object to the $700 shortfall, or (b) file a State complaint against him, which might or might not be against West Virginia law. Question: I work for a physician.

Professional Resume Services

West Virginia: $96,280 becomes $108,668 when adjusted for cost of living. When you are looking at a job change there are lots of variables complicating your task.

“Why is it acceptable to expect someone to work 60 to 70 hours a week?”

Sklover Working Wisdom

Wheeling, West Virginia. Question: I find that the company I am working for is using the exempt-from-overtime status of many of its employees to avoid hiring additional employees to handle the abundance of work. Why is it acceptable to expect someone to work 60 to 70 hours a week for 7 years? I feel this is a form of abusive behavior.

Jobs in the USA - Coal Miner/Trump Edition.

The HR Capitalist

West Virginia coal miners can't get a job in solar or wind without retraining, looking for a different company to work for, and yes, moving somewhere else. One of the things that's fascinating about the Trump presidency is some of the promises - direct and implied - he's made that the jobs environment is going to improve for the blue collar American worker. The Trump jobs platform is a cocktail of trade policy, economic policy, protectionism and more. .

I work in West Virginia. It’s five answers to five questions. Here we go…. Am I being unreasonable in my expectations of this student worker? I’m a newly hired assistant manager in an office setting.
