Garment factories supplying three world-famous brands, Nike, Primark and H&M, have been accused of underpaid workers. While the brands have not broken the law, they have failed to ensure the wages workers deserve in the epidemic. However, they have made a profit in Corona last year.
A study by the Clean Cloth Campaign (CCC), an international coalition of labor rights groups, found evidence of wage theft by garment workers in Bangladesh, Cambodia and Indonesia. Apart from Nike, Primark and H&M, many other brands and suppliers also paid lower wages to workers during the Corona period.
The research report was prepared by CCC on the interviews of 49 garment workers. Eighty percent of the workers said they did not receive normal wages during the coronation period. However, before Corona, she had to fight poverty with what she got. In the epidemic, the lives of the workers became miserable due to low wages.
According to the research report, 11 workers of Primark’s supplier factory owe 2,890 dollars, 18 workers of H&M’s supplier company owe 2,368 dollars and 13 workers of Primark’s supplier factory owe 1,527 dollars. The workers have complained that despite the low wages, the target for sewing clothes has increased, unsafe working environment and insults of officials have been the norm.
According to a report in The Guardian, H&M and Nike have claimed that workers in their supply chain have been compensated according to local rules. And Primark said they took the data from the research report seriously.
