So I was offered and accepted a job back in August. The offer letter stated I would have a base salary and then be paid a bonus on units sold each week. Then in January they decided to cut the base salary in half. This is a huge change in pay and if I had known this was possible I would have taken a different offer. I continue to work hard and bring in additional revenue but my pay decreases every week. Is there anything I can do or should I just cut my loses and find somewhere else?
I am in California but the company is based out of Kentucky. Also, the pay cut was universal to all employees nationwide. I now have to make a huge amount of "sales" per day to make up for the cut in base pay. I was also told this is the 3rd restructuring of the pay scale in the last 2 years and older employees made less in base salary than some of us new hires. It all seems very shady. If I had known this was the direction they were headed I would have taken another position
