If my employer refused to pay me for the 3 weeks that I was a full-time employee and then terminated me for asking about these wages, is this wrongful termination?

Will I ever see these wages?

Based upon what you have written about, you were wrongfully terminated and are owed the three weeks of pay plus penalties. I suggest that you consult with a labot attorney in your locality. One can be found on attorneypages.com to assist you. You can also make a complaint with your local labor department as well.
