Say the only position they have open is a stockroom job, but it only pays $7.50 an hour for 15 hours a week. If I am not mistaken they have to pay you the $15 an hour and give you a minimum of 25 hours per week. I may be totally wrong.
I know a friend of mine deployed and when he came back his employers wound up paying him his old pay to do a job that they usually paid someone less to do. (make sense?)
