Enough to feed your family - it’s not too much to ask
A living wage, enough to meet a workers’ basic needs, and the needs of her children, seems like a fundamental common sense part of any company’s responsibility.
Yet, this year, when we asked top highstreet retailers what they were doing to ensure workers were paid a living wage, fashion giants Gap and H&M both told us they were working towards paying a minimum wage to workers, which in production countries is often less than half what a worker will need to care for and feed her family.
You can take action now to call on these brands to do better.
