Jaba Garmindo, Indonesia

With Jaba Garmindo sudden bankruptcy, two thousands families lost their livelihood

The Jaba Garmindo factory went bankrupt in April 2015. Just months earlier, the Japanese brand Uniqlo had pulled all its orders. The workers made clothes for Uniqlo and s.Oliver and were left without the severance pay they were legally-owed.

Uniqlo is the third biggest clothing retailer in the world. The brand made huge profits over the pandemic, and is valued at $9.2 billion. Tadashi Yanai, the chairman and biggest shareholder of Fast Retailing (parent company), has a personal net worth of $26.4 billion. Uniqlo continue to deny any responsibility towards the workers and still refuse to pay. 

The documentary ‘How to Steal Your Workers’ Future’ highlights the urgent need for brand accountability, as well as the exponential rise in severance theft cases since Covid-19.
