Investigations and assessment of Chinese worker labor conditions

Since its founding in 2000, CLW has conducted over 400 assessments of labor conditions in Chinese factories producing for multinational companies across industries ranging from furniture to shoes, stationary to toys, and garment to electronics. These assessments utilize a mixture of undercover investigation and off-site worker interviews.

Findings are published and released to international media outlets, and we have been covered by The New York Times, The Washington Post, and The Guardian, to name a few. Through our investigations, we hope to increase transparency in global supply chains, encourage brand companies to more effectively implement their codes of conduct, and improve working conditions. We work with Governments, civil society members, and companies to ensure accountability towards the legal and social costs associated with commercial and international decisions that come at the expense of low wage workers.
