H&M Investigate Alleged Unethical Practices

H&M, Tesco, and Primark have been lambasted after an investigation by the UK’s Daily Mail claimed that factories contracted by the high-street retailers were exploiting its workers in sweatshop conditions. All three retailers said they would investigate claims they contracted factories engaging in unethical work practices in Bangladesh including child labour, poor wages and alleged unfair dismissal.

As part of the investigation, the newspaper has called for greater transparency in the supply chain, including bar codes that trace a garment back to a specific factory and a minimum wage of 72 UD $ month in the country.
