Labour Behind the Label is calling on you to help change the shoe industry. Currently global shoe production is an immense market, with over 22 billion shoes being produced in 2013 alone, that’s 3 pairs for every single person on the planet. Operating under a veil of secrecy with little transparency, the industry allows human rights abuses, such as poverty pay, long working hours, exposure to dangerous chemicals and toxins, denial of trade union rights, etc. to continue unchecked. It’s time for this to change.
