Workers Urge Brands to Pay their Full Wages

Garment factory

Millions of workers in garment supply chains world-wide have not been paid their full wages during the pandemic or have lost their jobs without adequate financial compensation.

The Clean Clothes Campaign network started a campaign calling upon brands to take responsibility for the workers that make  their clothes and ensure that workers are paid what they are owed.

In a report Clean Clothes Campaign calculated that just for the first three months of the pandemic garment workers
in global supply chains are owed between 3.2-5.8 billion USD in unpaid wages, legally owed bonuses, and compensation.

It urged apparel brands and retailers to commit to a wage assurance and pay the workers in their supply chains what they owe.

The “Pay Your Workers” campaign launched focuses on H&M, Primark, and Nike – three of the brands that
most frequently appeared in reports from workers about worker rights violations during the pandemic -,

but the call to take responsibility is directed at all garment brands and  retailers with outsourced production.
