Bangladesh: Trade unions demand wage hike for garment workers amidst inflation

"Bangladesh unions demand $215 minimum wage for garment workers", 8 February 2023

Global union federation IndustriAll’s affiliates in Bangladesh have demanded an increase in the minimum wage from Tk 8,000 ($75) to Tk 23,000 ($215) for garment workers, as the country sees roaring inflation, leaving workers struggling to make ends meet. Bangladeshi labour law requires the formation of a new wage board every five years to settle wage structures for every industry.


The demands include the minimum wage of an-entry level garment worker fixed at Tk 23,000 ($215), with a yearly increment of 10% as opposed to the current 5%. Other demands of workers’ unions include ration facilities for workers, considering the rising cost of living.
