What is the minimum work hours that an employer can schedule you for?

My employer schedules me only for 2 hrs a day

Unless you have a written employment agreement or a labor union that guarantees you minimum number of hours and protects you, your employment is "at will." That means that you can quit anytime you want with no reason or notice, and your employer can fire you anytime they want with no reason or notice, so they don't have to schedule you for any hours at all.

This answer does not create an attorney-client relationship.
