The documentary tackles garment worker conditions in South-East Asia.
On our minds is Living Wage Now, the latest documentary tackling garment worker conditions in South-East Asia. Produced by Asia Floor Wage Alliance, the 32-minute documentary let current workers and retired ones (amongst them individuals injured from the Rana Plaza disaster) explain how a wage that doesn’t cover their basic expenses affect their lives. A spokesperson from the organisation behind the documentary means that one of the key points they want to put across is the need for a locally adjusted regional living wage—an Asia Floor Wage—that covers a family’s basic expenses such as food, housing, transport, education, and healthcare, but also allow for minor savings in cases of emergency. Watch the documentary here.
