Made-by.org quote - could argue .... responsibility ... state


"Conversely, one may argue that the ultimate responsibility to ensure workers are paid a living wage falls into the hands of the state. Retailers would be legally obliged to pay a living wage if it were represented by the legal minimum. However, the garment industry contributes to 17% of Bangladesh’s GDP and 8.5% of the Pakistan’s GDP. It is figures such as these that may explain why some governments are hesitant to raise the legal minimum wage, as higher labour costs are likely to deter foreign buyers."
