On 18 December 2018 Thomson Reuters Foundation reported:
Fashion workers in Britain are being cheated of fair wages as lack of tough action make abuses 'a risk worth taking' for factory owners, lawmakers said on Tuesday (18 December). 'It's clear that modern slavery is happening in plain sight and potentially in garment factories in the UK,' said Mary Creagh, chair of the U.K. parliament's environmental audit committee, after a hearing about sustainability in fashion. Committee members said insufficient action was being taken against those committing labour abuses in Britain.

Such 'flops' highlight the need for more intelligent, evolutionary, Natural Law based, life-supporting systems.
There have been just 14 prosecutions for non-payment of the minimum wage since 1999, the hearing heard, and Creagh said checks on factories were rare and fines for those underpaying workers were often only a few hundred pounds.
