Layla

You would just love Layla. Her foster mom says she is lovely, and we agree. Layla is a 1-year old, 53-pound golden retriever/hound mix. Layla came to the shelter due to the death of her owner. She has a medium-short length, red-colored coat. She has the appearance of a hound, especially with her long ears and pining eyes. She is super sweet with a hound’s laid-back nature.

Q. My son was hired as a mechanic’s assistant at $14 an hour. He told the supervisor that he had some experience, but he was willing to learn as he went along with the job. The supervisor was fine with this, and my son was given other duties as well. My son was very happy, always on time to work, apparently no problems. Last week he was called to the office and told they had hired a previous ex-employee to come back as the assistant. My son was given the option to go work in another job, but his pay would be reduced to $10 an hour. Is this legal?
