Day of Action: Tell the brands #WeNeed177 in Cambodia

Date: 

Thursday, December 10, 2015 (All day)

Location: 

Online and at an H&M or Walmart store near you!

Together 14 Cambodian unions have launched a joint campaign calling for a new garment industry minimum wage of $177/month. Currently garment workers in Cambodia earn a mere $128/month producing for brands like H&M, Gap, Zara and Walmart. Recently the Cambodian government announced that the wage would increase only by $12/month in 2016. However, according to the research of Cambodian and international unions, the median consumption expenditure for a single worker is $207/month. Please show your support for Cambodian workers in their campaign toward a living wage by taking action on December 10th, International Human Rights Day, at a store near you. Sign up here in advance of Dec. 10th to receive store action materials.
