The Kardashian family and their successful clothing brand are under fire with accusations that products were created in foreign sweatshops using child labor, according to Star.
Star's report claims some of the workers are as young as sixteen years old and are being abused and imprisoned against their will.
The Institute for Global Labour and Human Rights tells Star:
- "The Kardashians are in bed with some pretty bad people. Not only are celebrities like the Kardashians taking advantage of these workers, they are holding hands with a government that spits on democracy and women's rights."
Workers spend seven-days-a-week making the products in "squalid factory-run dormitories filled with the stench of sewage," according to the report.
The Kardashians earned a reported $65 million last year. They have yet to issue a statement regarding these claims of what's being described as "slave labor."
