You may have heard on the radio this morning that an NGO called Action Aid has released a critical report highlighting the payment of poverty wages to women clothing workers in Bangladesh and India.
The report refers to a survey by Asda that states that workers making our products are being paid wages that fall below a living wage.
We’re really disappointed by this report as it doesn’t do justice to all the hard work we’ve been doing behind the scenes. It also doesn’t reflect the positive conversations we’ve been having with Action Aid, the most recent of which was less than two weeks ago. That’s why we’re a little surprised to say the least that they’ve chosen to single us out for criticism.
