Essentially, this person won't be paid at least for the first month, maybe 6-8 weeks. Can they still collect unemployment until they get their first paycheck? The state is Wisconsin.

I am 56 year old female. I have worked for just bit over 2

I am 56 year old female. I have worked for just bit over 2 years for a very strict, mean, rude owner who lives in another city from the property I manage. Do see usually once a week or so.7 mos ago I brought in a 27 yr old male past coworker.Within in 3 mos owner was speaking to him about being a manager. (Original plan was he was to move into a front desk supervisor/mgr..my assistant as had been dicussed). Has no supervisor or management experience.First clue something going on---In February I found out owner changed my email recoveries for the office. Also managed to get in "my" personal google account, locking me out of my personal email and showed as a "connected device" in "my" personal email.(My fault, I had created a work email using my personal email for recovery and somehow both emails linked to my Google account..enabling him to gain access..?) nothing to hide but just upsetting and felt like he was being scandalous..maybe firing me soon, made me feel ill.This owner is unable to be pleased, always wants more out of you and never gives verbal appreciation. I have made great improvements over past years for him.Second clue--- same time frame..I knew of a expected pay conversation with this employee and owner ( to be my assistant..?).When I asked employee how it went, he beat around bush and basically said he did not want to displace the trust owner gave him. Hmm...**soon found out he has this employee doing General Manager training on our companies online university.(Not the same as 10000 class, but a step towards)Owner has been nastier than usual, yells, is demeaning and nik-picks me each week.I recently decided to tell him I wanted to take a vaca week and maybe the following mon, tues due to flight being much cheaper.Owner said to me-- "you can take 2 or 3 weeks off, I don't care" "will talk soon about your wages, if I have to pay 2 managers there will be changes, I can't be paying both of you". Says he will talk to the other employee about what responsibilities he will take on and that we would be having another conversation concerning my change in pay....! He must be planning on taking my vaca away from me-- no pay.? I haven't been off a week since march 2016. Never signed any contracts nor does he have employee manual. Only email saying outline of position, mentions bonuses and vaca time.Also then told me to quit using the work email I created my first week over 2 years ago and is in my business cards...?I work my butt off for this guy. Required to work 6 days a week 8 plus hours, cover shifts also. Nomal work 110 plus. Have stayed these 2 years because didn't see him often, need the money, does do nice bonuses at times and I love the business itself.Trying to hang in there-- thinking he going to fire me, last Manager was offered $12. (Was 40000). Asst position.- he then quit after training me. I was 5th manager in 12 mos period. Think longest he's ever kept or maybe it is.. dumb enough to stay.Kind of embarrassing, humiliating, sad, mad. Worked to hard to be treated badly and worried bout monies. Hard to continue to be a good worker and train my replacement...Obviously would love to quit...Looking for any advice.... Will I get unemployment if I don't except his change in my pay or if I quit because of the whole situation? Train my replacement?Age discrimination. Or sex discrimination.Our scores and rankings are good, no bad complaints on me as a manager and he has never written me up for anything.Thanks for reading... Appreciate your thoughtsTriciaC
