End the exploitation of garment workers

End the exploitation of garment workers by fully enforcing UK labour laws to ensure workers are paid a fair wage and have safe working conditions.

Why is this important?

Workers in clothing factories in the UK are being exposed to unsafe working conditions, and wages as low as £3 an hour.

It is illegal to earn less than minimum wage in the UK - and we have laws and workers’ rights in place that should protect all of us at work. But right now they are not properly enforced - which means workers are put at risk.

This needs to change. If the government commits to improving the enforcement of UK labour laws, we can set a level playing field that ensures decent jobs, safe conditions and fair wages for everyone. Sign the petition to up the pressure now.
