If you were an employee, not an indepedent contractor, the employer should have taken withholding taxes out of your pay and paid those over to the government, along with any taxes the employer owes. You should have also received overtime for all hours worked over 40 in any workweek.

You might want to call the Pennsylvania Department of Labor and Industry or the U.S. Department of Labor. They can open an investigation if they think the employer violated the law.
