Boohoo: the investigation into the “slavery” of the fashion giant | news

Leicester workers making clothes for the fashion giant Boohoo are paid at just £ 3.50 an hour, according to an undercover Sunday Times investigation.

The factory, which displayed the Jaswal Fashions sign, was also operational last week during the localized blockade of the coronavirus with no further hygiene or social distance measures in place. The undercover reporter spent two days working in the factory where he was told to expect £ 3.50 an hour, despite the minimum wage in Britain for those aged 25 and over £ 8.72.

He got hidden video footage of himself by making factory-made clothing under the label of Nasty Gal, owned by the fast fashion brand Boohoo whose boss, Mahmud Kamani, will receive a £ 50 million bonus.
