US Walmart, Gap, H&M ‘intensively exploit’ India-Bangla workers

The Asia Floor Wage Alliance, which released a series of reports by trade unions and advocacy groups on the working conditions across the companies’ supplier factories for Walmart, H&M and Gap in India, Bangladesh, Indonesia and Cambodia, includes over 70 organisations representing garment industry trade unions, NGOs, consumer groups and research institutes.

 The report ‘Precarious Work in the Walmart Global Value Chain’ said that across the 24 Walmart producing factories surveyed in India, workers reported violations of international labour standards including a “range of wage practices, including payment of wages below their skill level, denial of legally stipulated over time rates, illegal deductions, late payments and non-payment of wages”.
