Workers In Ivanka Trump’s Garment Factory Can’t Afford To Live With Their Own Children

Updated on 1 September, 2018 at 11:26 am By



Ivanka Trump has come up with a new formula to remain the leading lady amongst women of the United States of America: she is now encouraging the latest proposed federal paid leave policy and encouraging women to strive for work-life balance. But there is something which is way, way far from what she proposes.

As per reports, the women who make garments for Trump’s line of clothing are paid so less they can barely afford to live with their children.

Employees earn the equivalent of Rs.11,000 a month ― the lowest legal minimum wage in all the provinces in Indonesia. Alia, a worker said that she lives in a dusty boarding house near the factory, an hours-long drive away from her children, and can only afford to visit them at their grandmother’s house once a month.
“When Alia was told the gist of Ivanka Trump’s new book on women in the workplace, she burst out laughing,” The Guardian reported. “Her idea of work-life balance, she said, would be if she could see her children more than once a month.”
According to the report, out of 2,500 non-union workers at the factory, roughly three-quarters are women. Most of them devote almost all their income to children with whom they can’t afford to live. The factory offers workers three months paid maternity leave and an extra Rs.675 a month if they don’t take a day off for their menstrual periods.
