Find the manufacturing defect
Living Wage Defect: It's time to pay a living wage to all garment workers
Those horrible situations are linked to one big problem : the garment workers who make our clothes cannot live decently on their work. In the majority of the cases, they do not even earn 50 % of a living wage. So THAT’s the manufacturing defect on almost all our clothes.
Let’s remind to brands that they are responsible for the implementation of a living wage for garment workers in their supply chains!
Symbolically send them back a garment of your choice due to its "living wage defect" and sign the Call for a living wage.
149 251 people call for a Living Wage
149 251 people signed the petition for a Living Wage and by that they were telling fashion brands and policy makers to make sure a living wage is paid to garment workers. Because a living wage is a human right!
At the 13th of October 2015 the Clean Clothes Campaign handed over a collection of 149 251 signatures to representatives of fashion brands - H&M, Inditex (Zara), New Look, Tchibo, C&A, Arcadia Group, Lola & Liza, Penland, Topshop Topman, JBC and Stanley and Stella - and to Klaus Rudischhauser, representative of the European Commission.
A number of companies have committed to paying a living wage in the future. Others have taken the first steps to ensure that workers’ rights are protected throughout their supply chain. But the Clean Clothes Campaign will not rest till a Living Wage for garment workers is reality.
