Singled out for paycut

My employer recently cut my pay from $11 to $9 an hour claiming that business was down and he cut my hours too. However even though he claimed that everybody was getting a pay cut, I found out that I was the only one who had been singled out and that everybody else stayed at the sme pay. He went further by discussing my pay while in the presence of another employee which I found humiliating and therefore an attempt to make quit. Do I have any recourse?

Paycut

Unfortunately, the only recourse for this type of mistreatment arises from assessing whether you are in a protected category, such as age (over 40), gender, national origin, race, or disability status. If you can prove that other employees not similarly protected were preferred by the employer, you may have a claim for unlawful discriminatory treatment. Feel free to contact my office in Lenexa, Kansas if you desire more information.
