Not necessarily, especially in this economy.

They could have simply called up their runner-up candidate and offered them the job in that elapsed 10 minutes.

Why not? How long does it take to make a phone call? It wasn't your offer anymore.

For me personally, I use the site below, PaycheckCity, to calculate my exact wage/salary so I'll already know if the pay they're offering me for the job is satisfactory.

It does your tax (federal, state, SS, Medicare, local) calculations for you too and shows you the exact net income you can expect.

All you have to do is choose the state you live in, enter your hourly wage (there's a calculator for weekly/bi-weekly/monthly/annual salary as well), the number of hours you'll be working per pay period, enter in any deductions and/or allowances and finally enter your address if you pay a city income tax.

thanks. I will keep that in mind. I'm not used to getting the hourly based salary, my current is annual based, and i have been at my job for 4 yrs, just started looking. thanks

What is your justification for thinking it would be illegal? If you are going to come here and get us all to play along, I would like to know what your rationale is....

So you turned a job offer, tried to get it back, and since they said no you want to know the legality? Tell you what, go ahead and sue them. This should be good.
