Texas has a payday law which is enforced by the Texas Workforce Commission. If your former employer persists in refusing to provide your payment, file a complaint with the commission to assist with collection. You can hire an attorney...but considering that it's just two days of pay, it is probably more cost effective to simply file the complaint and let the agency assist you for free.
