Anyone know a good labor attorney?

My company (a large food chain corporation) just sold us to a franchise and my pay was busted down from its already paltry hourly rate to a dollar less than it already was with no notification whatsoever. We're all showing deductions we can't account for from the new company and my district manager had already changed her story twice on the subject and I'm being nowhere with these people. In fact, I'm getting major attitude from the store managers as well when I dare to even ask why this is happening. I just went on my break and applied at our competitor just down the street but I just got my own place last week and now can't pay the rent on the first due to my being shorted on my first two checks. Can anyone please help? Unfortunately, I'm low income AND in Texas. Thanks in advance for your help.

Don't Quit

When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,
When the road you're trudging seems all uphill,
When funds are low and the debts are high,
And you want to smile but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit,
Rest if you must, but don't you quit.

Life is queer with its twists and turns,
As every one of us sometimes learns,
And many a failure turns about,
When he might have won if he'd stuck it out.
Don't give up, though the pace seems slow -
You may succeed with another blow.

Often the goal is nearer than
It seems to a faint and faltering man;
Often the struggler has given up
When he might have captured the victor's cup,
And he learned too late, when the night slipped down,
How close he was to the golden crown.

Success is failure turned inside out -
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt,
And you never can tell how close you are -
It may be near when it seems afar;
So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit -
It's when things seem worst that you mustn't quit.
