Sweatshop horror exposed at Chinese-owned factories in Bangladesh

London, Wed, 14 Mar 2012 ANI

London, Mar.14 (ANI): Workers at two Chinese owned knitwear factories in Bangladesh have revealed that they have been beaten and humiliated while churning out clothes for BHS Fashions Ltd.


The workers are paid just ten pence an hour.


Staff who turn up late are punished and are being forced to stand stock still for four hours.


Grieving workers are sacked if they dare to try to take time off to attend family funerals.


Thousands desperate to feed their families are forced to toil for 12 hours a day - seven days a week.


Brutal officials who impose compulsory overtime regularly cheat exhausted workers out of much of their paltry pay.


Watchdogs compared the conditions endured by workers to those in prison camps.


The investigators were so appalled they contacted billionaire fashion mogul Sir Philip Green - whose firm Arcadia owns BHS - to demand a crackdown. (ANI)
