Victoria's Secret has provided $8.3 million for the Brillant Alliance Thai Global workers who made their lingerie, to receive the full severance they were owed after 13 months of international campaigning.
Thank you to the nearly 50,000 people who took action and signed the petition in support of the Brilliant Alliance workers!

We developed a benchmark for living wages in European countries that reflects the reality of garment production in Europe.
