It was a promise 它曾經是一個承諾

In 2013, H&M Published its “Roadmap towards living wage”, promised that 850,000 textile workers will be paid a living wage by 2018.

2013年,H&M發表「生活工資路線圖」,承諾2018年前給予旗下850,000成衣工人生活工資保障。

By 2018, however, H&M workers are earning 9-46% of a base living wage.* This payslip is from India, the worker earn less than USD $100 a month.

可是到了2018年,H&M工人薪酬只有基本生活工資的百分之九至四十六。* 從這份工資單可見,這位印度工人每月只賺得不足100美元

In 2013, H&M said their goal was to have H&M strategic suppliers pay a fair living wage by 2018. However in mid-2018, H&M change their wording into “helping the supplier factories to implement transparent wage management systems”.

2013年,H&M定出目標,要在2018年前,為戰略供應商的工人提供生活工資。可是在今年中,H&M改口指他們其實會「協助供應商實施一個透明的工資管理制度。」

H&M workers want to share their thoughts h&m工人有話兒

Living wage first appeared in 1919 when the International Labor Organization (ILO) was established, and the ILO has since defined a living wage as a basic human right. To workers, it also means less overtime work, more family time, and better future for their children.

早於1919年,國際勞工組織已經提倡生活工資,生活工資被視為一項人權。對工人來說,生活工資也等於少點超時工作、多點家庭時間,以及孩子可以享受更好的將來。

H&M has the resources to ensure workers a dignity life, it is lacking the will to do it.

H&M有資源令工人過上一個有尊嚴的生活,它是不為而非不能。
