Poverty Wages

“Poverty Wages” in the sporting goods industry – What does this mean?


Have you ever asked yourself what lies behind a statement or sound bite that claims, for example, that a factory worker earns “as little as 34 pence an hour”. What does it mean?…adidas has spent a lot of time looking into the question of fair wages…And we can say with complete candour that pay remains a complex and not-so-easy-to-address topic for our contract factories…To a large extent, worker’s wages are determined by their local job market, the skill levels of the workers, the overall level of economic development in the country where they live and the actions taken by government in fixing minimum wages. Brands, and their buying practices, are not a significant driver…So could a worker be paid so little? Theoretically, yes, if a worker were deprived of any opportunity for overtime, allowances or bonuses s/he could receive such a meagre sum in one of the lowest wage cost countries.

  1. Good website! I really love how it is simple on my eyes and the data are well written. I am wondering how I could be notified when a new post has been made. I have subscribed to your RSS which must do the trick! Have a nice day!

  2. A few things i have seen in terms of personal computer memory is always that there are specs such as SDRAM, DDR etc, that must match up the specs of the motherboard. If the personal computer’s motherboard is fairly current while there are no computer OS issues, upgrading the storage space literally requires under one hour. It’s on the list of easiest laptop upgrade treatments one can envision. Thanks for sharing your ideas.

  3. Thanks for your write-up. One other thing is the fact individual American states have their very own laws that will affect people, which makes it very hard for the our elected representatives to come up with a brand new set of guidelines concerning home foreclosure on householders. The problem is that each state offers own legal guidelines which may work in a negative manner in terms of foreclosure insurance plans.

  4. A few things i have observed in terms of laptop memory is always that there are technical specs such as SDRAM, DDR and the like, that must match the features of the motherboard. If the pc’s motherboard is rather current and there are no operating system issues, replacing the ram literally requires under one hour. It’s on the list of easiest personal computer upgrade methods one can consider. Thanks for giving your ideas.

  5. Nice blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere? A design like yours with a few simple adjustements would really make my blog jump out. Please let me know where you got your design. Appreciate it
