Re: Got Laid off from my Weekend Job...
Considering what you can do - nothing, basically. As a temporary worker, your employment rights are not good. Anything ridiculous you do is only going to have a negative impact on your future prospects, everyone's had shitty bosses or jobs, all you can do is suck it up and move on, unfortunately.
The only thing I'd suggest is, whenever requesting wages they're not paying you, make your request in a polite manner, in writing, and save all correspondence. If they call you, stay civil and inform them you need to have what they've told you in writing. Keep a timeline and if you have any problems, there'll be a route you can take to get that money you're owed. In the UK that'd be the Tribunals Service, in the US I have no idea. I've been in that situation, that'll be what you need.
I don't know about there, but over here you can be laid off for literally any reason (other than unlawful discrimination) within the first year and have no recourse at all. It does suck.
