•the amount of and reason for each deduction from wages due or earned by the employee,

I received this answer from you, I understand this, but the problem is, I have worked for this company for 5 months and have never received a pay stub to know what is being done. Those working here also have not received any pay stubs. Is this legal to not supply a paystub?

It is illegal to not receive the above information with your paycheck. It does not have to be a stub it can be on paper but it has to be somewhere either on the paycheck, the pay envelope or a paper accompanying the wage payment including direct deposit payments.

The law is as stated above.

You should contact your local Department of Labor in Wisconsin to have them investigate why you and your fellow workers are not receiving pay stubs with your pay.
