demoted from salary to hourly and employer won't tell me my new wage? can I not report until I am?

I was demoted from a salary position to an hourly position and will be given a hefty pay cut. My new position has started but no one will tell me my new hourly wage. Payroll says they havent been told what it is yet. Do i have the right to not report to work until I am told my hourly wage and if I get fired for not reporting will I be eligible for unemployment benefits? If the hourly wage is significantly lower ($16/hr down $9/hr) is that just cause for resignation?

Keep going to work and get your next paycheck. Keep track of your hours.
