Exploiting Vulnerable Workers

7-elevenMigrant Workers Exploited

A Four Corners Repot has revealed that migrant workers in 7-Eleven stores around the country are being paid minimal wage and working long hours. Instead of the award wage of $24/hour some workers are receiving as little as $10/hour with no weekend or penalty rates. One worker reported not having been paid for over seven weeks. Another indicated he worked 70 hours; sometimes 80 hours with low wages, no respite and no breaks. Another worker was warned not to complain because authorities would report him for working in excess of he number of hours his visa allowed.(Photo: www.abc.net.au/fourcorners)  Read more…
