Is this illegal or legal if my employer says if our drawer is short that we have to pay out of pocket to make up the difference?

Question Details: The problem is that there is more than one person on the cash registers. At the time of hiring we didn't sign a paper saying that we would pay out of pocket and now they have a paper they want us to sign. It states that if we're short then we will pay the difference. Are they allowed to do this?
