A Living Wage Benchmark study is underway in the Baja California state in Mexico. This study is supported by Fairtrade USA and the Fair Labor Association. The study will cover the southern area of Baja California, Mexico, using the fishery, apparel, and fresh fruit industries as context.
Belize Living Wage Benchmark Study
The Living Wage Benchmark work in Belize is supported by Rainforest Alliance, IDH, and Fyffes through funding and facilitation of the study, and as part of a larger project to address living wage in banana supply chains. The study will cover banana producing areas of Belize, using the agriculture industry and banana sector as context.
The GLWC strives not only to align professionals working on living wage issues around one definition and methodology for estimating living wages, but also to build broad acceptance for each living wage benchmark by all stakeholders impacted by the work. We aim to support collaborative implementation efforts for groups looking to use benchmark research to address living wage gaps. We encourage a multi-stakeholder approach, as often the involvement of the entire supply chain is necessary to see real improvements in progress towards a living wage.
We have a range of opportunities to get involved, from supporting our ongoing work with funding, participating in implementation projects or living wage studies as key stakeholders when appropriate, or just staying informed about the work we do and spreading the word. And if you are using GLWC living wage estimates to improve the lives of workers, please let us know by emailing the GLWC at firstname.lastname@example.org.
