Mr. Donner was a good friend to Charlie's uncle, and in turn, to Charlie. As an employer, he did all he could for Charlie as long as Charlie didn't interfere with or upset the other employees. He does the right thing in employing Charlie, but he never backs him up.

Mr. Donner

Owner of Donner's Bakery where Charlie works. Donner is an old friend of Uncle Herman and promises to look after Charlie when Herman passes. He gives Charlie a lifetime job so he wont have to go into a home and treats him as family.
