The Guardian has an interesting article on it’s front page today (Monday 03/09/07).
Its about the wages behind cheap clothes sold in a couple of the UK’s major high street retailers. Here is a sentence taken from the article by Karen McVeigh.
“Brands including Marks & Spencer, Mother Care and H&M, confirmed that wages paid to garment workers were as low as £1.13 for a nine hour day. ”
It’s this sort of thing we are trying to find. We need to find the background to the everyday things we take for granted. Do we really know the actual cost of a cheap bargain?
