Hong Kong: Wage survey

English-language summary of a report in Apple Daily:
The Clothing Industry, Clerical And Retail Trade Employees General Union interviewed 227 store service workers, stock clerks and cashiers and found that Watson paid HK$27, Manning paid HK$25, ParknShop, OK, Wellcome and 7-11 paid between HK$20-22 per hour. An interesting feature is that the wages are not uniform across Hong Kong for the same store chain. The highest rates are for the Manning and 7-11 in Tsimshatsui at HK$30 and the lowest at HK$16 at the 7-11 in the Tin Tsz estate in Tin Shui Wai.

Why would 7-11 pay HK$30 in Tsimshatsui but HK$16 in Tin Shui Wai?
