Both the chairman and Chief Executive Officer tof the 7-11 chain store have both resigned.
The downfall of the chairman comes after an ABC/Fairfax investigation into the company after the discovery that workers have been exploited and underpaid.
The ABC/Fairfax investigation found international students had been underpaid and forced to work more hours then their visas would have allowed. With one telling the ABC that he would’ve called himself “a modern century slave where all his rights were gone.”
7-11 has also said that substantial changes to its business model have been made including the share of profits it grants to franchisees.
The Financial Review has reported recently that Russell Withers has just recently bought a private jet. The model jet that he had recently bought is on the open market for about $10 million.
