War on Want in the Sun on Sunday: Exposed: Sweatshop ‘slaves’ earning just 44p an hour making ‘empowering’ Beyonce clobber.

Owen Espley, War on Want Sweatshops Campaigner, said: 

"The superyachts and luxurious life styles, enjoyed by the likes of Philip Green, are a far cry from the grim reality facing garment workers in Sri Lanka.

"Unless the fashion industry is transformed, women will continue to be exploited to produce clothes for the UK high street. As long as brands remain unaccountable for conditions in their supplier’s factories, garment workers and their families will suffer."
