Angelica Corp, an apparel manufacturer, has come under fire for alleged exploitation of Costa Rican workers who make its popular tropical style shirts. The company has been accused of paying the workers just $1.20 an hour. Labour activists said that although $1.20 an hour is better than wages in some other Central American countries, it is not a living wage. The rate, about $10 a day, is about 26 per cent lower than the average manufacturing pay in Costa Rica, the International Labor Organization said.
