It’s not much is it?
But if ASDA paid just an extra 2p on a £4 t-shirt, it could mean the difference between poverty and a decent standard of living for the people who make clothes for ASDA George in India.
That’s 2p, so that the women who work in ASDA's factories can send their kids to school, put food on the table and a roof over their heads.
Sounds reasonable, doesn’t it? Not to ASDA.
Even though it makes £45m profit worldwide every single day, ASDA refuses to pay workers a decent wage.
Today, you can help end the ASDA poverty guarantee.
