If you did not have a written employment contract setting or guarantying your pay, you were an employee at will and your pay could be decreased at any time, for any reason whatsoever--i.e. you could have had a pay decrease at the old brand. And an employer has no legal obligation to warn you of a pay decrease in advance; they can do it without notice. An employee at will has no rights to a given salary or wage (other than the basic legal right to be paid at least minimum wage, and to get overtime if they are an hourly employee, when they work more than 40 hours in a week). Therefore, you have no legal rights regarding your decrease; you pay is whatever your employer wants it to be.
