Asda - poverty guaranteed

Asda’s own surveys show that workers who make its clothes are still being paid wages that leave them unable to feed, clothe and educate their families properly.

New research by ActionAid shows that it doesn’t have to be this way. If Asda paid just two pence extra on each t-shirt it buys from India, the women who make them could be paid a living wage. Similar sums hold true for workers across the developing world.
