We want the makers of Zeeman goods to earn a living wage. In other words, a wage that is sufficient to cover all basic needs, such as housing, transport, food, and healthcare. In many producing countries the minimum wage is not sufficiënt to meet these needs. In 2022 we started four new living wage pilots at suppliers. This means that we now provide a living wage in the Fair East and Turkey for our share of the production at these suppliers. This is 12% of our total buying volume at our textile suppliers.
