With the FWF Wage Ladder you can compare any factory’s wages to country-specific living wage benchmarks developed by local stakeholders. Then create clear visualisations of gaps between benchmarks and actual pay, and use them as the basis for step-by-step improvements. The tool, available to any brand, also shows gender data, highlighting potential discrimination.
Co-Chair of the Fair Wage Network, Professor Daniel Vaughan-Whitehead (ILO) will present the first achievements of the fair wage approach and a wider perspective on wage developments. The session will also emphasise group discussions on how you can improve wages in your supply chain.
