CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- A former employee of a popular NoDa bakery is speaking out against labor practices Wednesday.

Controversy at Amélie's started when former manager Justin Miller left the shop.

Miller claims the business didn’t give overtime pay to employees. He said in a Wednesday press conference that the wage flap led to his resignation.

Now, he is forming a coalition of other former employees and community members to show support for works still at the bakery.

On Monday, the owners locked the doors for three hours to give employees a chance to voice any concerns. It’s the first the time Amélie's, the 24-hour store, has closed its doors in years.

NBC Charlotte’s Rad Berky will have more on Wednesday developments this evening.
