The factory workers...they are being replaced by unskilled workers...

In the second week of March 2021, the factory was temporarily closed for six months after a fire, and reopened in October without informing the workers…

"[bonuses are] deducted from the monthly salary of the garment workers…for no reason.

"In the past, the daily standard of clothing was eight hours of work and two hours of overtime for a total of 10 hours for 250 garments. Now…the standard number of garments is being increased up to 400 per day. We have to sew 150 more garments than before…”said an employee at the Honor Apparel garment factory.

He also said that in the workplace, employees are being rudely insulted…

The factory workers also want the hot and cold water heaters to be installed at the site and to have enough cleaners.
