And 75% of the people who are making clothing all over the world are women, meaning women bear the brunt of this injustice.
While it is not the only measure of fairness, earning a living wage is critical to lifting people, families, and communities out of poverty. And while knowing the lowest wage in a supply chain is not comprehensive, it is certainly a step in the right direction.
We are proud to join The Lowest Wage campaign and movement with the hopes of inspiring greater transparency, awareness, and accountability across the fashion industry.
What is a Living Wage?
A living wage is defined as: The adequate income standard needed to cover the living costs of an individual or family. Living wages are published as a range with the lower bound of 25th percentile and upper bound of the 50th percentile of calculated living wages based on the data from the WageIndicator Cost of Living Survey.
