Extract

This month dust off your sneakers as we launch Sneaky Business—a virtual march in support of footwear workers’ rights. This online action comes at a crucial time as a new report exposes that Converse workers have been subject to verbal and physical abuse. Meanwhile 90,000 workers making adidas shoes in Vietnam have gone on strike for fairer wages. Another report reveals how Zara and other top European brands are exploiting workers in Bangladesh. But there is also some reason to celebrate as Versace becomes the latest denim brand to agree to the global ban on sandblasting.
