Call for a Living Wage

A living wage is a human right, for all men and women, all around the world.

Compared to the cost of living in Europe, life is not expensive in Bangladesh, in Indonesia or in Cambodia. But living there in 2015 on a wage of €50, €82 or €100 a month is IMPOSSIBLE. (Yes, even in Asia!)

A living wage is a human right, for all men and women, all around the world.

I join the call of the workers to enforce this right.

I call companies and political decision makers to undertake concrete action.

  • I call on garment brands and companies to implement concrete, measurable initiatives within their supply chains to guarantee a living wage for all garment workers.
  • I call on the governments of the countries of production to fix the minimum wage at the level of a living wage.
  • I call on European governments to implement a regulation forcing companies to assume their responsibility regarding the impact of their practices on the respect for human rights in their supply chains.

I am sending back this garment due to its living wage defect and I want a living wage now for the person who made it!
