Report: Company behind Ivanka Trump's clothing brand pays workers about $1 per hour
G-III Apparel Group, the company that makes clothing for the Ivanka Trump brand, has violated several standard labor practices, according to a report by the Fair Labor Association.
The group, which based its conclusions on a two-day assessment of a factory in China, found that in 2016 workers were being paid about a dollar an hour, with almost 60 hours of work resulting in about $62 of pay a week, reports the Washington Post.
Overtime was also an issue, with employees putting in 40 standard hours plus an additional 42 to 82 hours of work per month; the law allows for 36 hours of overtime a month. In fact, the production target for the factory requires workers put in a 57-hour workweek.

As a result, the industry monitoring group has recommended that G-III cap overtime hours to fall within the acceptable range and that the company hire more staff to alleviate the workload.
Despite the violations, the Washington Post points out that "the report did not give the factory's name or location, or say whether it was working on Ivanka-brand products at the time of the inspection."
G-III also manufactures apparel for other labels like Tommy Hilfiger and Calvin Klein.
While the first daughter has stepped away from her clothing company and other businesses, critics point out that these labor violations do not appear to be in line with her or her father's public positions on fairness in the workplace or on boosting American workers, respectively.
