Oxfam Community Aid Abroad has condemned factories in Indonesia who supply sportswear manufacturers Nike and Adidas for extremely poor treatment of their employees. The report says that employees live in extreme poverty and work in dangerous conditions. This report was a follow-up to an investigation two years ago that criticized the two companies for buying goods from factories who violated the human rights of their employees. Oxfam concluded that not much had changed since the initial investigation. Adidas denied the claims and insisted that conditions had improved.
