Research raises Myanmar labour compliance concerns

Written by John Mowbray

YANGON - A new book has claimed Swedish fast fashion retailer H&M worked with clothing factories in Myanmar where children aged just 14 worked for more than 12 hours a day. Swedish authors Moa Kärnstrand and Tobias Andersson Akerblom told the Guardian they met with 15-year-old girls who were working until 10pm – a clear breach of Myanmar labour regulations as well as ILO conventions. The girls were working for Myanmar Century Liaoyuan Knitted Wear and Myanmar Garment Wedge, close to Yangon.
