PappaRich franchises at Macquarie Park, Chatswood and on Liverpool Street in Sydney’s CBD have underpaid workers to the tune of $74,000. A massive amount for low paid hospitality staff, who often struggle to make ends meet.

The Federal Circuit Court ordered penalties of $307,802 to the franchises who underpaid 154 workers. The main culprit,  Loke Cheng Wong, manager of the PappaRich franchise outlet at Macquarie Park, and formerly Chatswood and Liverpool street Sydney CB, has been fined $141,751 and $131,626 for their involvement in the exploitive activities.
