The findings in this book provide a cause for hope, as they show that there are already labour law experiments on local and national levels that have resulted in increased wages and better labour conditions for workers.

LIVING WAGE: Regulatory Solutions to Informal and Precarious Work in Global Supply Chains

Dr Shelley Marshall has undertaken research in a range of countries, including Australia, Bulgaria, Thailand, and Cambodia, studying the working conditions of informal workers that often work for poverty wages. Her book, ‘Living Wage: Regulatory Solutions to Informal and Precarious Work in Global Supply Chains’, proposes strategies to improve and enforce minimum wages for workers that suffer the consequences of the constant pressure from powerful actors to cut production cost. At the heart of the proposal is the dire need for an international labour law. This is a bold proposal for addressing working poverty - one of the most pressing social justice issues of our time.
