Cheap fashion at Brent Cross? "Revealed: The high-street shops that do not pay their garment workers a living wage"

Link to Independent on Sunday

"Debenhams, Matalan and The North Face are among the worst high-street clothing shops at paying a fair wage to those who make their products, according to a report to be published tomorrow.

" ... Half of the companies surveyed had wording in their codes of conduct specifying that wages should be enough to meet workers’ basic needs. But only four brands – Inditex, Marks & Spencer, Switcher and Tchibo – were able to demonstrate clear progress towards implementing them. 'Labour Behind the Label', a campaign for workers’ rights, says even these four have a long way to go before a living wage is realised for garment workers.

"Rushanara Ali, MP for Bethnal Green and Bow and Labour’s education spokesperson, is Britain’s first MP of Bangladeshi descent. After the Rana Plaza disaster, she was forthright in her demands for better worker protection for those making clothes that are sold in the UK."
