Ivanka Trump's clothing line is in the midst of historic sales numbers. But not everyone involved in making the clothes is benefitting.
A factory audit found the Ivanka Trump brand uses a factory that pays its workers $62 a week for a 57-hour work week, The Washington Post reports. The factory makes clothes for the G-III Apparel Group, which has an exclusive license to make the Ivanka Trump brand as well as clothes for Calvin Klein and Tommy Hilfiger.
Trump stepped down from her management role to become a federal employee, but still has an ownership interest in her brand.
Chinese factories are the predominant source of Trump's line, though G-III operates in several other countries. The group has shipped more than 110 tons of Ivanka-brand clothes since October, according to shipping data.
Many of the workers logged 82 hours of overtime per month, despite limits of 36 hours a month. They earned less than China's minimum wage.
Trump has long touted the merits of working women and her father's "buy American, hire American" methodology. But she was poorly received by a German crowd discussing those issues on Tuesday.
Workers at the factory earned five days of leave per year and did not have a union. Inspectors also found multiple safety violations. The inspection was carried out a month before Ivanka's father was elected President.
G-III has distinguished itself as a trusted partner for some of the world's finest and most visible brands.
G-III has been cited for multiple labor rights violations. In 2015, the Fair Labor Association found 15 percent of one of its factories' workers made $3.30 a day.
