Living Wage, Living Planet: September 2022 Update

The Garment Worker Diaries initiative is happy to share with you the third part of our “Living Wage, Living Planet” series. In part one, we talked about how paying garment workers in Bangladesh a higher wage would be good policy not just for workers but also for the environment. In part two, we reported the results of our living wage calculations and showed how much garment workers in Bangladesh would need to be paid just to have a minimally decent life. In this blog, we present updated calculations based on new data related to food and housing collected 6 months later. In addition to presenting our new living wage numbers, this blog provides information about workers’ housing preferences and what they believe constitutes “good” or “bad” housing.

As always, you can send any questions you have for MFO, SANEM, the workers or about the project to
