Across Asia governments set minimum wage levels which companies are obliged to comply with. A minimum wage should allow a worker to afford the basic neccesities to lead a decent life. However, as our Living Wage campaign shows across Asia in every garment producing country the minimum wage falls far short of a living wage. Read more about the dramatic differences here.
Twelve months after at least 112 people lost their lives trapped in the Tazreen Fashions factory in Dhaka, Bangladesh, families of the deceased and survivors are still waiting for full and fair compensation.

Pay garment workers a living wage
I want the women and men who stitch my clothes to earn enough to feed their family, pay their rent and live a decent life. A living wage is a human right, for all people all over the world. I say it's time to pay a living wage to all garment workers.
Check out the facts behind fashion in this annual review of 2012, presenting cases from the garment industry from around the world. Workers tell you first hand about their struggles. Activists involved in solidarity actions tell you why they got involved.
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.
The Clean Clothes Campaign and IndustriALL Global Union are today urging all brands and retailers linked to the disaster at the Rana Plaza building in Bangladesh to work together to sign up to a credible and collaborative process for delivering compensation to the victims of the disaster.
Since 1989, the Clean Clothes Campaign is dedicated to improving working conditions and supporting the empowerment of workers in the global garment and sportswear industries.
We educate and mobilise consumers, lobby companies and governments, and offer direct solidarity support to workers as they fight for their rights and demand better working conditions.
