I work in a furniture store in New Jersey for the last 30 years .. it has
About 10 employees.. I do make the most money..
I'm on salary..
However my boss has cut my pay 3 times within the last year .. this last time it was for 600 a month.
He has singled me out because I make the most and the store isn't doing well
No one else has gotten a pay cut. Is this legal?? Can he single out a person just because they make the most??

The harsh general rule of at-will employment is that an employer is, subject to minimum wage laws, free to reduce an employee's compensation at any time. Of course, an employer may not do so if the employer made an enforceable "promise" (e.g., a contract) to the contrary or the employer does so for an "illegal" reason (e.g., illegal discrimination).
