Living Wage Now! [Film]

Garment workers and their allies from across Asia call for living wages in the garment global production network in this 30-minute film presented by the Asia Floor Wage Alliance, an international consortium of trade unions and labor rights groups.

Living Wage Now! contrasts vignettes of department store windows with footage of military brutality against striking workers to unapologetically convey the heart-wrenching realities of the garment industry.

The documentary demonstrates the need for an Asia Floor Wage: a monthly salary expressed in Purchasing Power Parity (PPP) and calculated based on 50 percent of monthly salary going towards food, 40 percent on housing, clothing, travel, children’s education and healthcare expenses, and 10 percent towards leisure and savings.
