Internal restructuring: United States of America
ILO violation 1, 26 : The Meridian Garment factory in Jordan's Ad Dulayl Industrial Zone produces garments for Wal-mart and Hanes. Human Trafficking: Sixty percent of the 1,400 foreign guest workers at the factory have been stripped of their passports--which have been confiscated by management. Routine 16 to 16 1/2 hour daily shifts, from 7:30 a.m. to 11:30 p.m. or 12 midnight, with an all-night 19 1/2 to 22 hour shift on Thursdays, from 7:30 a.m. to 3:00 or 6:00 a.m. the following morning if they receive Friday off, which is supposedly the weekly holiday. Workers are at the factory 99 hours a week. Beatings, Threats of Imprisonment and Forced Deportation; Women Trapped in the Industrial Park: Women workers report being cursed at, threatened, slapped and beaten by factory managers. Any worker daring to ask for their legal rights is threatened with imprisonment and forcible deportation. Currently 20 workers are being threatened with deportation. Women workers are trapped within the confines of the industrial zone. Management physically prevents the women from leaving the zone, even to shop or visit friends. * Cheated of their Wages: Including forced overtime without pay and other illegal deductions, the workers are routinely shortchanged of 37 percent of the wages legally due them, earning just $45.63 for an 80-hour-plus workweek. Women are paid just eight cents for each pair of White Stag women's pants they sew for Wal-mart.: Jordan
