NGOs strive for decent wages in apparel sector
Dec '09
Millions of workers all over the world are under paid and millions of dollars are saved by apparel manufactures and brands by underpaying these workers.

Apparel industry is known for its payment on piece rate system, where workers are paid on the basis of the number of garments they complete. This makes it possible for
the manufacturers for easy exploitation of wages.

Workers are made to work for long hours of work with commensurate remuneration. Referred to as sweatshops; these atrocious working conditions exist more so in the developed and under developed countries.

Many NGOs are involved in exposing cases of underpaid labors. Many big industries have faced accusations of underpayment of wages.

There is also a growing concern among consumers as well about the working conditions in which apparels are manufactured. Anti-sweatshop campaigns are initiated to boycott the use of garments manufactured in sweatshops, despite the fact that they carry labels of high profile brands.
