My Employer Told Me To Report To Work At A Certain Time But Not To Clock In Until It Gets Busy. Is It Legal To Make Me Wait Around Without Pay?

No, it is not legal to require you to wait on the premises. You must be paid for all "hours worked," which includes time you are required to be on the premises at the employer's request.
