On 5th July, 2020 The Sunday Times reported that allegations had been made against a garment manufacturing company in Leicester and a supplier to a major fashion brand. The report stated that the company was paying their workers below the minimum wage and flouting social distancing rules by telling staff to come to work during the COVID-19 lockdown despite being sick and without any safety measures to protect the workers in place.
The treatment of workers in the fashion industry supply chain, both in the UK and overseas, reinforces the need for us to pressurise clothing brands to find out whomademyclothes?.
Ask yourself Whomademyclothes? Ask the brands, the retailers you shop from, the NGO’s and trade unions. Ask the government and policy makers and finally, ask the workers themselves. For more information click Fashion Revolution
