I was exploited working at 7-Eleven stores, being underpaid in their "half-pay scam" exposed in media recently – then fired for speaking up.Now, they've shut down the independent wage panel giving thousands of ex-workers like me fair compensation. This is a blatant attempt to avoid responsibility and to skimp out on paying the workers what they are owed.It's unfair and disgusting how they're treating us. Many were deliberately paid below half of the minimum wage, and Australia's largest convenience store chain is getting away with it.
I was trying to study when underpaid by 7-Eleven. I worked 16 hour shifts, working every public holiday - it was hard work. I was almost blinded on-shift too, when discovering someone trying to steal in the store.
Thousands of us exploited by 7-Eleven are still waiting for compensation. We need your help.Please sign my petition demanding 7-Eleven reinstate the independent wage panel and compensate workers in full. All workers should get a living wage with legal conditions.
