Do i get any compensation for being a whistleblower?

it was very hard to stand up to my boss re guarding the laws being violated at my work. i was told to quit by my boss and was refused my overtime pay and singled out by other employees. the department of labor came. now i feel as everyone is against me. i feel as i deserve compensation for everything i have had to go threw. my employer knew that he was breaking the law and threatened my job over it.
