Is the “fame-clock” at 14:58?  It appears that bad press continues to mount for the Kardashian family.  Now they’re being accused of using “sweat shop” labor to make their clothing line.

A human rights group is investigating claims that Chinese workers as young as 16 are working in squalid conditions to manufacture merchandise for the K-Dash by Kardashian label, the Kris Jenner Kollection and ShoeDazzle, according to a Star Magazine investigation.

There are also claims the employees work up to 84 hours a week, earning $1 an hour.

To be fair, the official word from Kardashian, et al is that the claim is without merit.

“As far as I know the factories that are used to manufacture the Kardashian clothing and shoes have nothing terrible going on at all and the factories are very well policed and meet factory standards.” Kris says she has not visited the factories in China.
