The service trade union PAM has asked for an investigation of suspected job discrimination against a Bangladeshi cook who worked at the New Bombay restaurant in the northern city of Oulu. According to the union, the young man was recruited from Bangladesh in 2012 with promises of a good salary. However his wages were not enough to live on and his work days lasted 10-17 hours. PAM estimates that the man is due 80,000-100,000 euro in back pay for a period of two years.
