Is this discrimination?

I work for a temp agency. I was contracte to do manual labor for 10/hr. I was moved to the shipping department, then to the office as a buyer/ planner. Now I'm doing a customer service representative job with the same company. My title has never changed from a material handler to anything else. And all of these positions are supposed to pay more on the hour. I called the board of labor and they say I am supposed to be paid for the job I am doing no matter what it is. I know there are different pay rates because a fellow temp changed roles to a different department an they adjusted her pay accordingly. The company knows that I am capable of doing the hard jobs that require brain smarts so they are making me so so. Yet I'm being paid for a manual labor job. The last person in te role I am currently in was paid 4 dollars more on the hour. Are they discriminating against me for being a temp?

If a fellow temp changed to a different department & got her pay adjusted, why aren't... More
