Thank you for your question.

Unfortunately, unless the cutting of hours is based on some type of discrimination, the store is able to do so. You are considered an "at-will" employee, which means that you can be terminated, suspended, or your hours cut at any time, without cause. What you can do is try to negotiate a different schedule that be a compromise for you both, but otherwise the store is able to remove your hours.

I am sorry.
