Child Slave Labor in Walmart India. Tesco, Gap, Macy, H&M, Carrefour, Starbucks,7-eleven, IKEA and Metro AG are the ultimate example of corporate deception.

Connie: Walmart India has been caught in many countries like China, Mexico and Bangladesh feeding off child labor. It is shocking that one of the most profitable companies in the world still use child labor.

Chloe Burgin 6.02.14. BBC News. Bangladeshi factory workers were locked in on 19-hour shifts. "The factory owners, they keep two different books. So one they show to the buyers, the other they show to the worker. These retailers' so-called audits really don't work." Codes of conduct demanded by western retailers to improve conditions are worthless if double-books mean there's no way of monitoring worker hours."

Factory workers locked in on shifts

Chloe Burgin 11.02.14. Bangladeshi factories, where some wages are as low as $37 a month (around £23), make clothes for H&M and other major companies such as Tesco, Wal-Mart, JC Penney, Marks & Spencer, Kohl's and Carrefour.  But Swedish fashion group H&M has called for a change in the treatment of countries factory workers - urging for a higher minimum wage and annual pay reviews.

Bridget Mcclelland ,these are the current minimum wages. China is increasingly higher due to being the largest exporter of garments globally.

Chloe Burgin 5.02.14. Clothes and sewing machines are seen in the Tazreen Fashions garment factory, where 112 workers died in a fire, in Savar. The fire sparked protests from thousands of workers who claimed the building had been unsafe to work in; Delwar Hossain denied the allegations.

Chloe Burgin 11.02.14. American Apparel "sweatshop-free." All of the companies products are made under one roof. It is also interesting to compare how companies employees are treated. The average sewer with experience at American Apparel is making about $25,000/yr, or $12 an hour, almost twice the federal minimum. Employees and their families with company-subsidized, affordable health insurance ($8/week, $1-3/week for children).

AMERICAN APPAREL proudly produces one million garments each week at their Sweatshop-Free factory in Downtown LA, and provide more than jobs all over the world.

Chloe Burgin 11.02.14. Safety concerns persist for Bangladesh garment workers. Walmart and C&A clothes were found within the building but both denied knowing that their clothes were made there. The man in the video is among 50 people that have not received help any help from the loss of their loved ones. I find it disgraceful that it was found that the factory was working without a safety permit, un yet no one has been punished BUT they still continue to make clothes.

Safety concerns persist for Bangladesh garment workers

Chloe Burgin 7.02.14. Bangladesh housed several garment factories - collapsed collapsed on 24 April. 2,500 people were injured in the accident and 2,437 people were rescued. It just shows how badly the workers were treated the fact that Just a day before the collapse, the building was briefly evacuated when cracks appeared in the walls. However, workers were later allowed back in or told to return by the factory owners.
