KARNATAKA - The majority of garment manufacturers which had been refusing to pay their workers the minimum wage since April 2020 in the Indian state of Karnataka have finally agreed to pay up.

The Worker Rights Consortum (WRC) says that it has received confirmation - either from the factories, brands or workers - that 15 of the 17 companies have finally committed to pay the legal rate.

The WRC - which had described the case as the "most egregious act of wage theft we’ve ever seen" - says 14 of the 15 have also agreed to promptly pay workers the arrears they are owed.
