Products showing the FAIR SHARE label from Continental Clothing, carry a small price premium that is passed directly on to the garment workers in India towards their Living Wage.
A LIVING WAGE IS A HUMAN RIGHT. IT SHOULD COVER THE BASIC NEEDS OF THE WORKERS AND THEIR FAMILIES, ALLOW FOR SOME SAVINGS AND MUST BE EARNED WITHIN A 48 HOURS WORKING WEEK.
Just a small increase in the price of the FAIR SHARE garment makes it possible to pay the poorest workers in the factory a wage increase of 50%. From the beginning of 2016 all the workers at the factory making these products in India receive an additional premium towards the living wage. The price premium of 10p per T-shirt and 54p per hoody is passed along the value chain, from the factory through to the retailer without being marked up, ensuring that the small additional cost at the point of sale is returned to the workers in its entirety.
