Drapers: Manufacturers slam new immigration system
April 5, 2020 - April 5, 2020
Fashion-Enter’s Factory and CEO Jenny Holloway feature in Grace Whelan’s article ‘Manufacturers slam new immigration system’ published in Drapers on the 19th February 2020.
Jenny was one of the fashion manufacturers approached to comment on the hot topic. Here’s a snippet from the article:
‘Jenny Holloway, owner of London manufacturer Fashion Enter, said it is “a sad day” for UK manufacturing. “I really object to the fact that our industry is regarded as cheap or low skilled labour and strongly suggest that the government should make the effort to visit manufacturers and see how skilled it is,” she told Drapers, labelling the new minimum general salary threshold of £25,600 as “unrealistic”. “It’s so disappointing that the government is not supporting the growth and rebirth of reshoring [manufacturing] at a time when coronavirus is playing absolute havoc with deliveries from China and we’ve had a spike in enquires and sampling from retailers.”
