Tell Canadian Tire CEO Greg Hicks to pay a living wage to garment workers!

Some of the garments sold at Mark’s (owned by Canadian Tire) are made in Bangladesh by workers who do not even receive a living wage, which would allow them to meet their family’s basic needs such as food, housing, utilities, healthcare, educations, transportation, and savings for rainy days. A living wage is a basic human right.

A woman working in a factory supplying Mark’s or Canadian Tire at an entry-level job earns as low as $120/month, or about $1,440/year. At this rate, it will take her 25 years to earn what Canadian Tire CEO Greg Hicks will make in two weeks of work.
