Beauty vlogger and Youtube star, Nabela Noor voiced against major brands to #Payup millions of Bangladeshi garment workers.
Nabela Noor posted a video from her Instagram account saying that, 'The exploitation of Bangladeshi garment workers must stop NOW. Major brands have yet to #PAYUP leaving over 4.1 million Bangladeshi garment workers at the brink of starvation and facing the threat of homelessness.'
She also urged her fans to support by sharing the information about these workers. Bangladesh is the 3rd largest exporter of readymade garment products right after Vietnam and China. Most of the workers in this sector also happen to be women. Thus the dependency for the lower-income families in the industry is unparalleled.
Nabela Noor's video was seen by about a million of her fans and followers. In the video, she went on to show a list of brands who were involved in this exploitation. She also called them out on their malignant practices that threaten the survival of many low-income families in Bangladesh.
'Low prices, huge steals, and big bargains are at the expense of garment workers' livelihoods,' she said.
She urged her fans to tag -@kimkardashian, @kyliejenner, @kourtneykarshian, @kendalljenner, @khloekardashian + Kanye West (on Twitter). Since, they were the big names related to the problems facing our RMG workers.
In a declaration of hope, she said, 'I believe that together we can make real, powerful change. It starts with raising awareness.'
