The man explained that despite her young age, his daughter had been working for two years and was given a lot of responsibility.
“She does the same job as adults who work next to her. She’s doing even better, “he wrote.
“She only opens and closes in the sandwich shop.”
“She has more responsibility than any other person in the sandwich shop, including the manager.”

“Time to boycott Woolworths. It is their choice to pay the reduced rate. There goes the bonus they paid out earlier, ‘a user tweeted.
Given the discussion of what is or is not Australian behavior during this crisis, how ‘Australian’ is stealing money from the lowest paid people to increase your profit? In the current version of Oz, I should say “Very,” another replied.
“We are also supposed to get a pay raise from July 2020 – in line with the reduction of fines on Sunday – but this will be suspended until February 2021,” someone wrote.

“The wages in our Enterprise Agreement, which was approved by our team and approved by the Fair Work Commission in 2019, match those of the Award,” said the spokesperson.
