Mexican textile factories, which are widely used by the world’s biggest textile manufacturers, are reportedly closing down amid allegations of rampant corruption.
According to a report in the Mexican newspaper El Tiempo, the government of President Enrique Pena Nieto has decided to shut down the factories of the companies.
The factories produce textiles for all the major companies, including Wal-Mart, Target, and Gap, and the factories have a turnover of $10bn.
The report claims that some of the workers have been paid less than $20 per month, and that some have not been paid at all for several months.
According the El Tiemano report, some factories have been unable to pay their workers because the companies have cut off access to the country’s financial markets.
According one of the former workers, who was working in one of these factories for nearly five years, he says he has been paid $10 per month for work that took place between November 2016 and December 2017.
He said that the factory had already been shut down because of corruption scandals.
The factory closed down on November 19.
A spokesman for the Mexican government did not respond to questions about the closure, and a Wal-Marts spokesman did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
But the report, which is based on interviews with former workers and sources within the Mexican textile industry, suggests that the closure of some of these plants is likely to affect the countrys economy.
The closure of textile factories is likely because of the rise in the cost of imported textiles in the past few years, which has led to an increase in the costs of paying wages and benefits.
“There is an increase of the costs,” said one of former workers.
“You have to pay more because you have to get a higher quality.
There is also a decline in the quality of the materials that you get.”
But the factories are still used by some of Mexico’s biggest brands, including Gap and Wal-mart, as well as by the multinational companies which manufacture clothing for the United States and Europe.
Mexico is the second-largest textile exporter in the world after China.
According in the El Telegrafo report, the textile industry employs 1.3 million people.
The majority of them are employed in the garment industry, with some manufacturing textiles and other apparel for retail outlets.
The countrys textile sector has seen an explosion in the last five years as the country has emerged as a manufacturing hub, with the country also hosting major markets like China, Brazil, India, and South Korea.
