The Age had disclosed last Saturday that Sherrin has been using child labourers to stitch its balls. Following the same, as per a recent report, Sherrin has discarded all the child labourers from their job of stitching footballs.
Not a single child has been allowed to work from Wednesday as well as subcontraction of ball-stitching work has been abandoned of its supplier Spartan's factory based in Jalandhar, India. Since, it was charged of using small children, even those of 10 years in age, to carry out its work.
The Age had told that mostly, girls were bring pulled out from school by the company and were made to work long for 10 hours a day for seven days a week. Whether it was a junior Auskick ball for the North Melbourne Grand Final breakfast or a promotional ball, each one took more than an hour of a child to stitch the same for some 12 cents.
Even their parents were involved in the same job. Though, Sherrin has taken the decision of abandoning in response to the charges. It is now receiving criticisms that it has left some families with no source of income.
It is being said that without giving them any replacement, the company is worsening their conditions even more.
