Asia Floor Wage


All garment workers in Asia need a wage increase. But often, when workers struggle to improve their wages and conditions in one country, companies relocate to another country, where wages and conditions are lower. So workers are afraid to fight for better wages, because they might lose their jobs. The Asia Floor Wage (AFW) is a response to this problem, developed by an alliance of NGOs, trade unions and academics from Asia, Europe and North America. The AFW is a proposal for a floor wage for garment workers in Asia. More via Clean Clothes
