Workers at a Chinese factory that produces clothing for Ivanka Trump’s line earn about $60 a week for nearly 60 hours of work, according to a new report.

The Washington Post reported Tuesday that an audit of the factory found that its 80 workers earn a little more than $62 per week.

The factory produces clothes for G-III Apparel Group, which has created clothing for Trump’s brand since 2012, as well as for brands including Tommy Hilfiger and Calvin Klein, the Post reported.

{mosads}The Fair Labor Association, an organization that serves as a watchdog for the retail industry, took a tour of the factory in October and found dozens of violations of international labor standards set by the United Nations International Labor Organization.

The Post report noted that the audit did not indicate whether the factory was working specifically on Trump-branded clothing during the time of the inspection.

The workers’ pay also falls below the minimum wage in some parts of China, according to the report, and the long hours exceed the nation’s laws limiting overtime to 36 hours per month.

Workers worked up to 82 hours of overtime, according to the report.

Trump’s brand has seen a spike in sales since her father, President Trump, took office.

An executive at the first daughter’s company told the Post that the brand saw some of its “best performance ever” in February, the same month top Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway plugged the brand on Fox News.
