Primark was quick to cancel all of their orders already placed with factories when the Covid-19 pandemic hit and most shops in the UK and abroad closed. The cancelled orders had a devastating effect, leaving suppliers with a shortfall in cash and resulting in workers going without their wages.
After intense pressure from campaigners, Primark eventually agreed to pay for their orders. But have the workers in their supply chain been paid throughout the pandemic?
Since March, workers who produce Primark’s clothes in Bangladesh, Myanmar and Cambodia have been protesting mass dismissal, unpaid wages and reduction in pay. Primark, we want to know, do you #PayYourWorkers?
