The salary contract they currently use,Is still the 2006 standard,It's much lower than it is now, especially for those underage employees. This bakery chain almost only hires girls aged 14-18, because their legal salary is lower than that of adults.

This girl, just like hundreds of other employees, took hundreds of dollars less every month, and Bakers Delight saved a lot of labor costs through the old salary contract.

However, the salary issue has been repeatedly prohibited in Australia. From various Chinese restaurants to large local chain stores, the news is revealed every year, but the time to resolve is long.
