Is it legal for my manager to have me come in at my scheduled time and then force me to not clock in, but wait because we are not busy?

No. You can report that to the state department of labor. In the meantime, find a job at a more reputable company.

Mr. Ashman is correct. If you are there at the manager's direction, you need to be getting paid. However, I often see this is small business situations, and people end up putting up with it because they need the job. If you can find some other job, and can document each time this happens, take the other job and seek redress after you leave for the time you worked but were not paid.
