The Fate of the Hot Cross Bun … cont

Chuckled to see a Letter to the Editor in “The Advertiser”  today commenting on the 100 yr old newspaper article I posted here just yesterday.

Letters to the Editor
Penalty Bunfight

NOTHING much has changed.  One hundred years ago April 4, 1912, the Bakers Union requested that the practice of baking buns of the Wednesday night before Good Friday forced the men to do two nights’ work which they objected to (The Advertiser, 2/4/12).
     Pity their thinking at that time wasn’t as modern as today when penalty rates may have applied.



The (Adelaide) Advertiser, Thursday, April 5, 2012.
