Deloitte Access Economics was been engaged by Oxfam to analyse Australia’s garment supply chain and estimate the impact of moving towards paying a “living wage” to factory workers within the supply chain.

Key questions:

What share of a garment price is spent on a factory worker’s wage?

How does the overall cost of bringing the garment to Australia change if factory workers are paid living wages?
