Fashion Victims II
War on Want's report, Fashion Victims II, exposes the appalling conditions faced by workers producing clothes for Primark, Tesco and Asda. The report comes two years on from War on Want’s original Fashion Victims report, published in December 2006, which found that garment workers struggle to survive on extremely low pay, suffering poor working conditions, arduous hours and a complete lack of trade union representation in the factories.
Two years on this new report shows workers making clothes for Primark, Tesco and Asda are still being exploited, despite promises from companies to improve the lives of their workers. In fact, given the damaging effects of the global food crisis, workers are now in an even worse position than they were before.
