H&M's living wage roadmap needs concrete benchmarks
by emma published 28-11-2013 — filed under: ,
Clean Clothes Campaign is disappointed that H&M's newly announced Roadmap to a Fair Living Wage fails to clearly state a living wage benchmark, we believe without such a definition it is both impossible to create a 'roadmap' to achieving its payment and similarly impossible to measure the roadmap's success.

Clean Clothes Campaign condemns employers' minimum wage proposal for workers in Bangladesh and urges brands to take action
by Neva Nahtigal published 20-07-2018 last modified 21-09-2018 09:21 — filed under: , ,
The Bangladesh garment industry employers’ association has shown utmost disregard for workers’ wellbeing and for their lives outside of garment factories. On Monday, 16 July, the Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association (BGMEA) submitted a proposal to the relevant public authority for the workers’ minimum wage to be set at 6,360 taka (about 75 USD). Not only does this amount not meet any living wage standard for Bangladesh – it does not even remedy employers’ disregard for the legally required increases over the past five years.

These include the minimum wage of 16,000 taka, a statutory framework to govern pay grades and promotion and other welfare measures.

#WeDemandTk16000: International solidarity with the workers in Bangladesh
by Neva Nahtigal published 12-10-2018 last modified 12-10-2018 09:03 — filed under: , ,
The struggle for a minimum wage in Bangladesh that would enable a decent life continues. Following a series of public rallies, press conferences and round tables, a number of workers are on a hunger strike today. This action, organized by the National Garment Workers Federation (NGWF), an IndustriALL global union affiliate, should serve as a stark reminder that the announced minimum wage of 8,000 taka will leave many workers and their families hungry and unable to cover other basic living cost.
