Employees claim unpaid wages at popular Toronto bakery

There's more trouble brewing in Kensington Market with former employees at My Market Bakery claiming they're owed thousands of dollars in unpaid wages.

Milo Jones, who worked at the local store as a baker, alleges he's out around $2,000. He started back in June when the bakery was under different ownership. "It was a good job," says. "He [the previous owner] paid me on time, it was all on the books. There wasn't anything weird about it."

However, according to Jones, the workplace environment started to change when Gary Rogers took over the business in the third week of October and told his staff he was going to close-up shop.

From there, Jones alleges Rogers started firing off employees. Jones stayed on until mid-December and by that time, he says he was working alongside just one other baker.

As Global News reports today, Jones, as well as at least three other former employees claim they're missing some of their wages.

Oliver Buck is one such employee and as Global writes, he has already filed a complaint with the Ministry of Labour. Jones has not.

Since leaving My Market Bakery, Jones has ceased all contact with Rogers and has gotten another job at a popular Toronto bakery in a different part of the city.
