The Global Living Wage Coalition members and partners are pleased to share our newest living wage estimate for Urban Tiruppur, Tamil Nadu, India. The infographic and additional valuable details, including context provided within the garment industry can be found by downloading the full benchmark report and infographic.
This benchmark has been shared with a range of local stakeholders in Tiruppur through a series of meetings. During the first set of meetings led by Social Accountability International (SAI), we were able to obtain incredibly valuable input from local stakeholders that provided opportunity to further improve the quality of the report and estimates. Adjustments made based on those initial comments were then shared at a second set of meetings in March 2018, again led by the team at SAI. We are excited to be able to release the results and thankful for the quality input of local stakeholders through these validation events.
The GLWC will continue to release living wage benchmarks frequently over the next six months. Please feel free to share and invite others to sign up for future benchmark releases.
