Shein promised to tackle overwork. A new report claims 75-hour weeks are still common

More than a year after a fashion company pledged to address excessive working hours in its supply chain, a new report suggests the company still faces challenges. Workers in some factories supplying the company are reportedly still working long hours, according to an investigation by a human rights advocacy group. The group interviewed textile workers employed at several factories in China and found that they worked an average of 12 hours a day, typically for six or seven days a week. The report also claimed that workers’ wages had hardly changed since a previous report and were below a living wage in China. The company has disputed the allegations.
