For what could possibly be the first time in retail history, international apparel store H&M has positively stated workers’ wages could be raised by increasing the price of clothing. The company’s head of sustainability, Helena Helmersson, told a newspaper that increasing the pay of its third-world workers “might be a possibility” given this scenario, but that it would not happen for a long time. Sign the petition in support of raising workers’ wages and making H&M factories safe workplaces immediately...

Bangladesh increased its minimum monthly wages by 77%, that translates only to roughly $66, still leaving them as the worst paid workers in the World...
So, a 100% raise would be far from enough, but it could be a start - NOW!

Thanks Allen. This was a year ago, and guess what? The minimum wage 1914 is $66 a month. Exactly the same! H&M is a swedish company, makes me ashamed of my country!
