In light of the upcoming Fashion Revolution Day we look to garment workers’ rights both far away and closer to home. With an increased demand from brands and retailers attracted to applying a ”Made in the UK” tag to their products we have seen an upswing of UK based garment factories, many of which have recently been exposed for not complying with minimum wages and basic health and safety. UK based manufacturers are outsourcing labour to factories taking on workers with poor English language skills and/or without legal permission to work, and as a result, manufacturers can get away with contract-free employment arrangements and sub-national minimum wage pay along with questionable hours and facilities. This taking place astonishingly close to home makes the disconnection between fashion workers and consumers even more evident. More here. /Ada Källgren
