While big fashion brands like Nike continue to make huge profits during COVID-19, the women who make their clothes are wearing the cost.
Even before the pandemic began, brands paid low wages.
A year into the crisis, Nike has cashed in billions in profit, while garment workers and their families are going hungry as they bear the brunt of job losses.
Over 1,200 Cambodian Violet Apparel garment workers, who made Nike clothes, have been protesting over unpaid wages and benefits after the factory suspended its workers in May 2020, before suddenly announcing it would close permanently on 1 July.
We call on Nike to step up and support the women who make their clothes through this crisis by:
✔️ Paying for all orders during the pandemic
✔️ Paying 10 cents more per garment into a crisis fund so garment workers have access to wages and benefits, including severance pay
✔️ Protecting workers’ right to organise and bargain collectively.
