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

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.
