What are my rights regarding a rescinded job offer?

Approximately 3 weeks ago a company made me a job offer and I accepted. I was scheduled to start in 3 days. I completed required drug background tests, no issues. Purchased required/non-refundable uniforms and prepared for my new position. HR called me told me very excited to have me join the team. Today I went into the office and was given a tour of the facility and was shown were I would be working at. My file was reviewed to confirm my shift and department. I left and within 10 minutes received a call they could not hire me because other people had decided to return and now not enough money is in the budget to hire me.
