LEICESTER - The Labour Behind the Label (LBL) initiative has launched a project to engage with garment workers in Leicester where factories supplying clothes to UK fast fashion company Boohoo have been accused of exploiting their employees.

LBL has appointed a community engagement worker in Leicester where workers making clothes for Boohoo were said, in 2020, to be earning less than half of the minimum wage and working without coronavirus precautions.

One of the difficulties in uncovering worker abuse in the city was said to be difficulties in communicating with garment workers many of whom have limited English and were allegedly intimidated into silence by their employers.
