I am highly upset. I left a good company and signed on with a contracting company five months ago to work as an on-site contractor for a certain amount of time and a certain amount of money. This company (a large international company) decided they were paying us too much and told my company they will only pay a certain rate (a lot less). My company would not go for that so another writer and I have been given two weeks. They are going to interview and hire less experienced people for a lot less money.

What gives a company the right to change the rules in the middle of the game? I understood that when you signed a contract with a company it is supposed to be honored. If they can just change the contract without any repercussions, it's not worth the effort to sign the thing. What legal steps can I take?

MBNA did the same to their contractors, twice in as many years, and while they were making 19% net profit.

It happens. I have retaliated by not using MNBA financial instruments (credit cards, etc.) and by asking friends and family to also not use them for these reasons.

If they can give out bonuses, they don't need to cut my pay.
