KARNATAKA – The Business & Human Rights Resource Centre (BHRRC) has spoken with global fashion brands to gauge how they’re planning to support Indian garment workers who were last year found victims of wage theft.  

Factory staff in Karnataka making clothes for the likes of Puma, Nike, Gap and H&M had lost out on an estimated US$55 million, with manufacturing bosses in the region failing to encompass a ‘variable dearness allowance’ – introduced to reflect the rising cost of living – into pay packets. 

After brands spoke out against the malpractice, stressing that they were committed to paying the legal minimum wage, the BHRRC’s investigation maps the progress that’s been made.
