Are they committed to paying the women who make our clothes a living wage?

47 years old Ajirun Begum is a Rana Plaza Survivors. She is unable to come out from the fear of that incident and her health condition has degraded ever since the accident. When she worked at Rana Plaza, her fixed salary was 4500 Taka. For last ten years she is on pain medicines and has no income. Savar, Bangladesh Photo: Fabeha Monir/Oxfam


Big brands are keeping the women who make our clothes living in poverty.

The women who make our clothes do not make enough to live on – keeping them in poverty. Despite long hours away from their families, working full time plus many hours of overtime, big clothing brands do not pay garment workers enough money to cover the basics of life – food and decent shelter.

I took 200 taka loan from someone… by taking this, I bought medicines and had those. This is how I survive, what else shall I do?”
