WASHINGTON – Nike, adidas and Gap have responded to research by the Worker Rights Consortium which suggested garment workers are going hungry in apparel supply chains. The WRC surveyed nearly 400 workers across 158 garment factories in 9 countries (Bangladesh, Cambodia, El Salvador, Ethiopia, Haiti, India, Indonesia, Lesotho, and Myanmar). Survey respondents reported they are increasingly unable to obtain adequate food for their families – and most workers said they expected the crisis to grow worse in the months ahead.
The brands most regularly cited by surveyed workers were Adidas, The Children’s Place, Express, Gap, H&M, JCPenney, Nike, PVH Corp, Gildan and Walmart.
