Lululemon factory workers in Bangladesh allege verbal and physical abuse

Lululemon is the well known billion dollar athletic wear company with a controversial history. The company made their mark manufacturing yoga pants but has now expanded their operations to include other products.

According to reports, young female factory workers in a Bangladesh factory, gave detailed accounts of abuse they endure while creating products for Lululemon.  In addition to substandard wages, workers claim that they were slapped, hit in the chest, called derogatory names simply for missing work due to illness, in some cases, or for not meeting production targets or breaking rules.  Some female employees are reportedly  paid a monthly wage that is less than the cost of a pair of Lululemon’s leggings and are required to work long and extended hours to fill orders.

If the allegations are proven true, this would be an embarrassment for Lululemon since the company is part of The Sustainable Apparel Coalition, which ensures corporate social responsibility in relation to environmental impacts. Lululemon has promised to investigate and state  that they  do not tolerate violations to their strict code of conduct.
