Dear Justice Mail Friends,
The minimum wage in Bangladesh’s garment industry is equal to just US$67 a month. The cost of living is rising, and workers are struggling to survive. In December, with no other route for raising their frustrations and demands, factory workers held peaceful walk-outs and demonstrations for a higher wage. Instead of agreeing to pay a living wage, or even to bring forward a wage review, factory owners brought unsubstantiated criminal charges against dozens of labour leaders and garment workers.
Use the Labour Behind the Label’s link to call on brands whose clothes are made at the factories behind the complaints to take immediate action for the dismissal of the falsified charges and the release of the jailed activists and workers.
