Protests Against Adidas Emerge, Again
Despite claiming to be the world leader in sportswear, Adidas actually shines best when it comes to harassment, wage theft, and other labor-related offences.
- People from all over the world have been protesting Adidas, for it's long legacy of workers' rights abuses.
- For example, just in Cambodia 8 Adidas supplier factories owe more than 11 million in unpaid wages. Protesters are often arested and silenced by Adidas suppliers.
- Workers and activists from countries such as the United States, Italy, Pakistan, and Cambodia united to call on Adidas to compensate its workers fairly.
- In Myanmar protesters demanded that Pou Chen, an adidas supplier who fired 26 union members this week, quit retaliating against their union.
- Across the cities in Germany activists came together to draw attention to the company's lengthy history of wage theft and anti-union repression in its supply chains for clothing and footwear. Workers have been protesting for months now.
