Race for a Living Wage: educational exploitation for all the family!

27 October 2013, Race for a Living Wage

Time 12:00 - 15:00

Duration 3 hours

Cost Free. Donations to the museum gratefully received

Come along and join Labour Behind the Label and join the ‘Race for a Living Wage: educational exploitation for all the family!’, a fun free activity where you can compete against friends and family in a relay race on a mock garment factory Labour_Behind_the_Label_Manchester_Meetupsassembly line.  Featuring an exhibition exploring the realities for a garment worker living on minimum wage and how this equates in terms of labour, there will also be inclusive activities for all ages.

Anna McMullen of Labour Behind the Label states: “The weekend of activities are fun and participatory, but there is a serious message behind them.  We aim to offer a snapshot of what life is like for a garment worker earning minimum wage, and how inadequate this is in terms of covering basic human needs.  The living wage is a human right, as marked out in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and is fundamental to improving the lives of garment workers worldwide.”
