The campaign ‘Pay Your Workers’ was launched during the COVID-19 outbreak. It works as an intermediary to communicate between the suppliers of garment manufacturers and fashion brands. This campaign’s objective is to pressure the fashion brands to take responsibility for refusing to pay $16 billion in wages for fashion workers.
The COVID-19 crisis was a ‘turning point’ for this issue because of its direct impact on the economy. Fashion brands decreased their business risks by ignoring their garment workers, people whose suffering during the pandemic is made worse by poverty. The campaign changed the role of the fashion workers who are usually behind the scenes, making them public.
