There's not a worker alive today who does not want to be paid fairly for their labor. But what is a fair, living wage? In this episode, we speak to experts who help us understand the difference between a minimum and a living wage, dig into profiles of workers and industries that are at the greatest risk of falling below a living wage standard, and showcase businesses that are working to ensure every worker — throughout their entire supply chain — is fairly and ethically compensated. "Living Wage" features experts from B Lab, Fairtrade International, and SOKO, a women-led, people-first ethical jewelry brand, connecting artisans in Kenya with the global market. In this episode we answer:

  • What constitutes a living wage?
  • Who is most impacted by wage gaps?
  • How can businesses provide a living wage across the global supply chain?

Guests include: 

Joanne Calabrese, CEO, Soko 

Wilbert Flinterman, Senior Advisor, Workers’ Rights and Trade Union Relations for Fairtrade International

Bernard Gouw, Senior Manager of Social Standards, B Lab Global
