WINSTON-SALEM – Apparel company Hanesbrands has paid out US$330,000 to compensate more than 800 garment workers in Haiti after the closure of their factory threatened to leave them in poverty.

Hanesbrands, which owns brands including Champion, Playtex, Bali, Barely There and Wonderbra, had been the main buyer of the GO Haiti (Garments of Haiti) factory until the owners closed the plant.

The Worker Rights Consortium (WRC) confirmed the company had paid the equivalent of almost three months' wages to the affected workers to ensure they received their legally required severance.
