A report released today lends clothing to clothing, saying that they are paying outfits like Big A, Target, Cotton On and Aussie, like Kmart, as they try to get all of their employees.
When retailers are trying to keep their retail costs, fashion lovers try to supply Australian costumes, where domestic workers from foreigners pay a local minimum wage and fear pay.
Reports many workers are afraid of job security and can not make payments in the five-year period.
They often feed themselves, they pay for medicine, and many loans are stuck in a debenture cycle, loans can not be returned.
According to surveys conducted by Australian brand name apparel manufacturers and workers, a country paying 100 percent of employees was paid less than local pay, according to Oxfam Australia.
After the Big W, Kmart, Target and Cotton supply factories were interviewed in 470 employees, the group found that 9 employees in the Bangladeshi factory did not finish enough.
The results were similar in Vietnam, where ten people participated in 7 incomes that did not survive their needs.
Local restaurants tend to compete with high-quality jeans, shirts, underwear and bikinis to offer low-cost, high-cost costs, burdens that families feel abroad, who work under poverty leases in factories and feed their families.
A worker, Sadia, 28, said Oxfam was not able to save the living effect of poverty, but could often not buy food.
"I can not save. I can not eat for life," said Bangladeshi women.
"Our research shows that Australian-branded clothing workers are undergoing constant debt," says the report.
According to the report, the discovery "gives a systemic gap, enough to pay salaries for people to pay for the basics of a decent life."
Australian brands should price the price of around 1 per cent to absorb the cost of local minimum wage workers, according to the report.
Australians can keep track of what Makes local favorite brands on the web.
Committed Cotton On, Kmart, Target and City Chic has been made by Cotonou, Kmart, Target and City Chic, to get a salaried salary for workers, Oxfam Australia welcomes.
In a conversation with another employee, dressed up in Chameli, W Big W, he said he paid 50 cents a day. The monthly salary average was $ 128, while working hours and 3 working hours were not cleared more than $ 165 a month.
Chameli recently adopted her daughter, 14, to go to school to enter the clothing industry. The wages of poverty suffered by the Bangladeshi family have fallen into the spiral cycle of debt.
She said she was afraid of being hungry. "I do not think I have any jobs, my children will not get any food, then I will give them strength," said Chameli.
"The research shows the general payment of the wages of the poor and the influence of the vital force of the workers, especially women, clothing in Australia," said Oxfam's Head of Australia, Helen Szoke.
"Women who can not treat their illnesses, families who can not send their children to school, families who can not eat enough food on the table, people who sleep in their homes, and mothers divided among their children – The failure of major brands is just some of the common realities to ensure the payment of life wages. "
"The first step is to sign Australia's Australian iconic icon to be a clear strategy and timeline that will help pay salaries to help them make their clothes," said Helen Szoke, Managing Director of Oxfam, Dr Helen Szoke.
