Written by John Mowbray

BOSTON - New research claims it would cost just €1.35 to double the wages of people producing t-shirts that retail for €25 each. The research claims it is time for the global apparel industry to "re-balance its industry economics," in order to improve the lives of millions of textile industry workers by ensuring they receive a fair and equal wage. "There is a long journey ahead before reaching that target, but brands are well-positioned to start the journey today," claims report by The Global Fashion Agenda, in collaboration with The Boston Consulting Group.
