If I am demoted, is it legal in the state of California for my employer to cut my salary?

I was the General Manager of a restaurant and was demoted to Assistant General Manager. I was being paid $60,000 ayear as a GM and when I was demoted, my boss told me that he was not going to pay me that salary to be an AGM. He told me that I would receive a $10,000 a year pay cut. Is this legal?
