There has been a new twist in the US court case that branded Nicaraguan factory Chentex a sweatshop, as over 1,000 employees from the factory have called for the case to be dropped. Reports in the Financial Times have revealed that over 1,000 workers marched on the US embassy in Managua to protest against the labour rights case brought to court by US congressmen and activists. The jeans factory workers fear the bad publicity from the case is putting their jobs at risk.
