We are pleased to announce the publication of two new Anker Living Wage Benchmark studies!
This report, commissioned by Patagonia, estimates a living wage for workers in the capital of Nicaragua, with a special focus on workers in the Las Mercedes Industrial Park and Free Trade Zone near the airport of Managua. Because the GLWC has previously published a benchmark report for northwestern Nicaragua, this report also offered a unique opportunity to compare Anker living wage estimates between the richest and poorest regions of a single country. Read the report.
Caribbean coast of Colombia
This report estimates a living wage for the banana growing regions of Colombia: Magdalena, Guajira and Urabá, located in Northern Colombia along the Caribbean coast. This study was conducted in 2018 and includes an update to January 2020. Read the report.
The following reports are near completion and we hope to release them in the coming months.
- Living Wage Benchmark Report for Rural Ecuador, banana industry
