Can a large company lower wages without changing the job description?

The largest soft drink distributor I work for ( over 10 yrs) has recently re-structured posistions in the sales area and made everyone in their current posistions "re-interview" for the job, giving it a slightly different title, and minor description changes. Many will lose their jobs, and the rest will suffer loss in wages. Now , it may trickle down to the actual delivery area which SEEMS to cut and dry to do the same thing. How can they get away with it, and where do we stand if they try?

Legally employee wages can fluctuate like gas prices unless you have a contract . Work is business and business is about contracts . What do your contracts say about wages ? And when do they expire ? >
