ActionAid living wage model

ActionAid’s living wage model for clothing companies.

This briefing presents a model for use by garment buying companies to cost a living wage into the overall amount they pay to suppliers. The model also aims to improve compliance with ‘wage defaulting’ issues that are endemic in the garment industry, such as payment below the legal minimum wage, and under-payment of overtime.
