Living wages = human right

Fair pay for the makers? That should not be
revolutionary! Join us in ensuring living wages are respected as a
human right and changing the electronics
industry for the better.

Join the fight for fair living wages

A smartphone is so much more than the sum of its parts: It is the people that make it. People who are skilled in their fields and working to provide for their families.

Thousands of people working in factories played a role in creating the powerful device you carry with you every day. Many of them struggle to access the bare necessities for a decent life, simply because they don’t earn a fair living wage. This has to change!

Minimum Wage ≠ Living Wage

Minimum wage just doesn’t cut it for the people working in factories to support themselves and their families. In China living wages are triple that of the legal minimum wage. This creates a pressure cooker of excessive overtime hours and even budget cuts through food, housing, health care and education to make ends meet.

Together with a big coalition of companies, we called on the Members of the European Parliament and European Commission to respect living wages a human right.

Our living wage program has been up and running since 2019. For less than $2 extra per phone, all factory workers that don’t earn a living wage get an additional salary of up to three months. That’s a real difference, for less than the price of a cup of coffee. We’ve openly shared our guidelines, investment calculators and our legal templates – We’ve even sent personal letters to the CEOs of all the big brands out there, just in case they missed our invite… but no answer yet. At this point, the industry needs a crowdsourced wake-up call!

Let your voice be heard and sign the petition to respect living wages a human right.
