Hypothetically, let's say that I am a cashier at a convenience store. Let's say, hypothetically, that I am an hourly employee that has been with the company for 10 years. Let's also pretend that my boss who is also the manager of the store has four weeks paid vacation per year and averages personal or medical leave/vacation every year that totals around two weeks, maybe three. Now, why this boss is on her vacation.leave,sick time - they have me the hourly employee cover that managers paperwork and various other responsibilities.
My question is this. I make, let's say, $9.00 per hour anything over 40 hours is time and a half pay. Let's say a manager (who does not only her job but doubles as a cashier too) gets a salary of $600 per week.
I think that nothing is wrong. My SO thinks that I should at least be making the managers salary for the time that I do her jib as I am a regular hourly employee - nothing more. MY SO says that my company by not paying me a 'managers salary' is breaking the law and Equal work for Equal pay.
What is your opinion? In case it matters the job is located in Tennessee.

You are paid to be a cashier. If you want to be a manager, with the associated salary/benefits/responsibilities, then you need to work hard, train and apply for a manager's job. Otherwise, you can keep being a cashier.
They're not breaking any law. You're doing what is asked of you. Your job title has not changed.
You could approach the company and ask them to promote you to an assistant manager's job.0
