Canadian garment brands and retailers are profiting from poverty

The wages that Bangladeshi garment sector workers are paid do not come close to what is needed for women to escape poverty, no matter how hard they work. This situation has been made worse by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Canadian brands and retailers are no different than other global brands as they seek to minimize the cost of production.

The campaign aims to:

  • Win binding commitments from Canadian garment brands and retailers to ensure living wages for the people who make our clothes.
  • Demand global brands urgently protect workers in their supply chains from the impacts of COVID-19.
  • Raise awareness about living wages and the gap between it and a garment worker’s current average wage.

Let’s build a movement to Stand with Bangladeshi Garment Workers in Support of Living Wages!
