SWEAT SHOP

It’s a story so unbelievable that #TheDeviTeam took a step back to reassess if we had missed something. It all started with a desperate email from a viewer who described a totally unbelievable situation – we were told that over 20 people were working in an alleged sweatshop in northern Johannesburg. The allegations were damning – employees not allowed to leave the premises, workers forced to sleep on the premises living in deplorable conditions and working inhumane hours. We took on the story and found ourselves in the middle of an investigation so shocking that we had to constantly ask ourselves … how could it be, that in a democracy, with advanced labour laws – how could such a travesty exist?
