New report re-ignites living wage debate

Written by John Mowbray

AMSTERDAM - A new report has claimed that fast fashion brands such as H&M and Primark are turning a blind eye to labour rights abuses in their Eastern Europe-based supply chains. H&M workers earning just €0.50 an hour for embroidering a top are among a host of allegations in the Clean Clothes Campaign report which looks in detail at the wages and living situations of garment workers in ten countries, nine European post-socialist countries and Turkey. While the report doesn’t suggest labour laws are being violated, it claims local minimum wages in many of the countries mentioned fall well short of a ‘living wage.'
