Aaron Halegua Talks on Work Conditions in China's Apparel Sector

Former Skadden Fellow Aaron Halegua ('09) was quoted in a Dazed article about a human rights worker who went missing after investigating the conditions of a factory in China linked to Ivanka Trump's clothing line ("The Story of a Missing Man, a Chinese Factory and Ivanka Trump"). Commenting on worker conditions in China's apparel sector, Aaron said, "It is common practice ... for employees to work 60 or more hours per week, despite the fact that this violates many brands' code of conduct and the nation's own labour laws. Unfortunately, low wages, a failure to pay social insurance, and unsafe working conditions are not the exception but the norm."
