exploitation of crew
I am the mother of a 15 y.o. girl and I am disgusted at the way she is exploited. Recently she worked an 8 1/2 hour shift with no break. When she stopped to have a drink she was told to do something else at the same time. When I work a shift that long in my casual job I get a 30 minute unpaid break and two 10 minute paid breaks in a staffroom. These teenagers are never told their rights as employees. I complained and received an apology which was worth nothing because it has happened before and will happen again. The Manager said some rubbish about "maybe we could look at preventing that". If Maccas truly wanted to prevent workers missing breaks they are entitled to, they would.
