MANCHESTER - The WIEGO (Women in Informal Employment, Globalising and Organising) network is urging fashion brands to step up to protect homeworkers who it describes as the world’s most vulnerable garment workers.

It argues that while the plight of workers in garment factories has grabbed the headlines during the coronavirus pandemic, the homeworkers at the bottom of the supply chain are even more vulnerable and easily forgotten.

Subcontracted homeworkers — women who work from homes for some of the leading brands, often for pennies — have been left to fend for themselves after losing their income, including payments for work already completed, claims WIEGO.
