Produced by Deloitte Access Economics for Oxfam Australia

29 Oct 2017
Description

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?
