This report identifies gaps that need to be addressed in order to improve wages and working conditions for garment workers. It describes our findings on the actual wages that Vietnamese workers in some garment factories receive and the impact of wages on their lives and families.
The garment sector is predominantly made up of women, so low wages plus poor working conditions is a matter of gender inequality. Therefore, paying a living wage and improving working conditions is an effective solution for addressing gender inequality in Vietnam.
The report identifies practices in the global supply chains that lead to this status of wages and the domestic barriers to achieving a living wage. Low wages are the result of unfair business practices within the garment supply chain. The purchasing power of brands is the ultimate cause behind all these practices and is key to the solution.
The report provides recommendations to global buyers, consumers, factory managers, the Vietnamese Government and labour unions for achieving a living wage.
