What is my recourse regarding a promise of payment that has now been revoked?

Question Details: My employer is offering classes to become a certified Medicare agent. I was sent an email that said employees were now going to be paid $9 an hour for taking these classes. However, 4 days into our 10 day class, we were told that we were not going to be paid. Is this legal? Is the email sent a legally binding document?
