Haiti has become an apparel-producing powerhouse as global clothing brands like Hanes move factories there to take advantage of some of the lowest wages in the western hemisphere. But workers aren't benefiting from the boom -- a new report from our friends at the Worker Rights Consortium has revealed that every single export garment factory in Haiti has been paying workers less than the minimum wage. And as a result, three quarters of Haitian garment workers donít make enough to afford three full meals a day.

At the end of this week, Russell and Gildan, two of Hanesís top competitors, are meeting with labor rights advocates and representatives from Haitian unions to make plans to pay workers what they're owed. But Hanes has refused to join them. That means we need to speak out now and let Hanes know that consumers will hold it accountable if it tries to ignore the workers making its clothes.

Tell Hanes to stop stealing from the poor: End wage theft at your Haitian suppliers.

The depths of greed in this world are always staggering to me, no matter how many times I encounter them, they never fail to surprise.
