pipedreams Posted March 2, 2021 Share Posted March 2, 2021 Woke Boohoo not so woke when it comes to its own employees. "US Customs and Border Protection has seen enough enough to launch an investigation into the company after campaign group Liberty Shared exposed how the company “is not doing enough to stop forced labour in the Leicester factories which make many of its clothes,” reports Sky News. The scandal is particularly ironic because Boohoo was one of the numerous corporations that vehemently virtue signaled in support of BLM during last summer’s riots, with the company posting a black square on social media for “Blackout Tuesday while asserting, “we are listening.”" https://summit.news/2021/03/02/fashion-brand-that-vehemently-supported-black-lives-matter-faces-slave-labor-scandal/ https://news.sky.com/story/boohoo-facing-possible-us-import-ban-after-allegations-over-use-of-slave-labour-12232343 "Boohoo also encouraged its customers to specifically support black-owned businesses. As we previously highlighted, several other major transnational corporations like Nike, Coca-Cola and Apple, all of which strongly supported Black Lives Matter, lobbied against a US ban on imports of products produced by Chinese slave labor. But they all posted the black square, so I guess that’s what really matters." 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
