Online fast fashion is a growing market. Consumers buying super fast trends in high volumes as seen on instagram and youtube means factories are under huge pressures to produce fast orders at low costs. This often impacts on human rights, including the right to a living wage.
Boohoo and Amazon are some of the biggest players in online fashion, but in our recent survey – Tailored Wages UK 2019 – both brands failed to show they had any policy for ensuring workers who make the clothes they sell are paid enough to live with dignity and support a family.
We are calling on Boohoo and Amazon to recognise publicly that workers who make their clothes should be paid a living wage wherever they are in the world, and to put this commitment into their supplier policies.
