Oxfam name the biggest fashion brands to exploit factory workers

Paying for essentials like food, housing, healthcare and education should be covered by a basic living wage, but some Australia-based brands aren’t ensuring that for workers making their clothes in foreign countries, a new report says.

Ahead of the Christmas season, Oxfam Australia has released it’s Naughty or Nice report – a list of fashion brands it claims have failed to make a commitment to ensuring factory workers in countries like Vietnam or Bangladesh are paid a living wage.

Some of the big names appearing on the list include Just Jeans, Peter Alexander, Jay Jays, Myer, Rivers, Katies, W. Lane and Big W.

The Spanish-owned Zara is also on this list for failing to publish the factories where its clothes are made.
