I work large bean processing plant in MN with home offices

I work for a large bean processing plant in MN with home offices in Nebraska. I drive a truck for the bean plant. About 2 years ago they took away what we called delay pay. This was pay for sitting in line and waiting your turn to load your truck, we can not leave our truck unattended. When our trucks would break down and we wait for them to be fixed we received repair pay, this was also taken away. I now sit in line to load my truck sometimes up to 4 hours at a time and can not leave my truck as I need to keep moving it forward with no pay but those hours go against my federal driving time. Can they legally take away pay that we once received? This has been very demoralizing to the other drivers and myself and it has also been a cut in pay. Any info would be greatly appreciated.Sincerely,***** *****sen

I'm a Texas employer in the Software consulting

I'm a Texas employer in the Software consulting industry. In our industry, 3 types of jobs are offered to consultants working 40 hours/week - full time with benefits, W2-contract and 1099. The W2 contract employment means consultants are hired for 40 hours/week for say 3 months, and paid an hourly compensation without benefits. The employer withholds all payroll taxes for them. This is preferred by consultants over 1099 as they do not have to do complex tax filings on their own. I'd like to confirm that the W2-contract arrangement is legal.
