H&M Accused Of Underpaying Their Employees

Mugatu, we have a problem!

H&M is being accused of underpaying their workers in Cambodia.

According to the Swedish program Kalla Fakta, the fast fashion chain pays their workers less than 25% of a living wage at $61 per month.


The International Clean Clothes Campaign points out that 2,400 workers passed out last year due to malnutrition, which is linked with salaries.

H&M is denying the accusations, saying the program is inaccurate and that they do support the Code of Conduct for paying workers. They added:

"Our code has the same level of ambition when it comes to the wage issue as other companies’ Codes of Conduct; the legal minimum wage is the basic requirement, and with the ambition that one should be able to live off the salary. It is what you do that makes a difference, and when it comes to these issues we are in forefront. We want a permanent change, negotiated between workers and employers. This should be done by collective agreement that all workers in a country could benefit from."

The Clean Clothes Campaign wants H&M to initiate a significant raise of the minimum salary to $131 a month.

We all know that minimum wage is tough to live on, but H&M makes $131 from a high school student’s back-to-school haul in one trip!

Hopefully they can come to an agreement soon because underpaying workers is no bueno!
