Clean Clothes Campaign launches initiative to ensure fair wages to laborers

Clean Clothes Campaign launched its new initiative: Good Clothes, Fair Pay on July 19. .The campaign was launched with an aim to collect one million signatures from European citizens to support the European Citizens Initiative (ECI) that urges the industry to pay fair wages to workers. The campaign urges brands and retailers to propose, implement, monitor, and publicly disclose a time-bound and target-bound plan to ensure fair living wages to workers. It urges them to identify risks groups hit hard by low wages. 

The Good Clothes, Fair Pay campaign will run for exactly one year. On collecting one million signatures, the Citizens Committee will discuss the content of the proposal directly with the European Commission. The issue of living wages has become more relevant than ever, Decades of poverty wages render workers helpless in providing basic needs for themselves and families, says Mario Ivekovic, Novi Sindikat, a labor union in Croatia.
