Ethiopia’s clothes factory workers, producing items for top fashion brands including Guess, H&M and Calvin Klein, are the worst paid in the world, earning only $26 (23 euros) a month, a report said Tuesday. As Ethiopia seeks to become the continent’s leading manufacturing hub, it has sold investors on workers’ willingness to toil for less than half the salary of tailors in Bangladesh, said the report by New York University’s Stern Center for Business and Human Rights.
The report, entitled “Made in Ethiopia: Challenges in the Garment Industry’s New Frontier,” said that in comparison, notoriously poorly-paid workers in Bangladesh earned $95. Their Kenyan counterparts earn $207 a month, and those in China $326.
