Asia floor wage for Bangladesh that is a living wage is 259 usd per month. Now minimum wage in Bangladesh for garments is 50 usd per month.

The solution – An Asia Floor Wage

The Asia Floor Wage proposes a wage for garment workers across Asia that would be enough for workers to live on.

Based on some common factors including the number of family members to be supported, the basic nutritional needs of a  worker and their dependents and their other basic needs including healthcare and education, the Asia Floor Wage is able to calculate the minimum amount needed to constitute a living wage.

The Asia Floor Wage is calculated in PPP$ –  Purchasing Power Parity $, which are an imaginary currency built on the consumption of goods and services by people, this currency allows us to compare the standard of living between countries, regardless of the national currency.

Currently the Asia Floor Wage is calculated to be PPP$ 725.

The Asia Floor Wage is different in each country’s national currency, but has the power to buy the same set of good and services in all countries.

he Asia Floor Wage Alliance base their calculations on the following assumptions:

A worker needs to be able to support themselves and two other “consumption units” (1 Consumption unit = 1 adult or 2 children)

An adult requires 3,000 calories a day to be able to carry out their work.

In Asia food costs account for half a workers monthly outgoings that is 50%
rest 40% towards housing,clothing,travel cost,kids education,health costs

Why Companies That Pay Above the Minimum Wage Come Out Ahead
This article is by Zeynep Ton, an adjunct associate professor of operations management at the MIT Sloan School of Management and the author of The Good Jobs Strategy: How the Smartest Companies Invest in Employees to Lower Costs and Boost Profits.

The conventional wisdom in business is that bad jobs like this are necessary to keep prices low and profits high. If a low-cost retail chain were to pay its cashiers more, then it would either make less money or have to raise its prices. Implicit in this logic is the seemingly self-evident tradeoff between low prices and good jobs. But that is a false tradeoff. Even in highly competitive industries like low-cost retail, it is possible to pay employees decent wages and treat them well while giving customers the low prices they demand.

First, these companies consider their workforce not as a cost to be minimized but as a strategic asset. They invest in their employees with the expectation that they will get even more back in terms of labor productivity, customer service, cost-cutting, innovation, and flexibility during difficult times. Most businesses consider their high-level managers and skilled professionals to be strategic assets. But these companies see their front-line people that way, too.

Her webinar presentation

Her book
Full of surprising, counterintuitive insights, the book answers questions such as: How can offering fewer products increase customer sat­isfaction? Why would having more employees than you need reduce costs and boost profits? How can companies simultaneously standardize work and empower employees?

Almost one in four American working adults has a job that pays less than a living wage. Conven­tional wisdom says that’s how the world has to work. Bad jobs with low wages, minimal benefits, little training, and chaotic schedules are the only way companies can keep costs down and prices low. If companies were to offer better jobs, cus­tomers would have to pay more or companies would have to make less.

review on her book

last year titled “The Good Jobs Strategy” — her thesis comes out of research she did early in her academic career on supply chain management in the retail industry, focused especially on inventory management. What she and her fellow researchers discovered is that while most companies were very good at getting products from, say, China to their stores, it was a different story once the merchandise arrived. Sometimes a product stayed in the back room instead of making it to a shelf where a customer could buy it. Or it was in the wrong place. Special in-store promotions weren’t being executed a surprisingly high percentage of the time. She saw this pattern in company after company.
