Working conditions: what’s acceptable?

FastFashion-SpecialTask-Banner

A recent investigation into a fast-fashion retailer revealed that their workers are paid as little as 35 cents for each item of clothing they make, and are forced to work 18-hour days.

The investigation also found that the workers do not get weekend breaks and are only given one day off per month.

It is obvious that these working conditions are unacceptable. But this got us thinking. We want to know what you think acceptable working conditions are?

    1. Paying workers fairly means that u should pay them according to the effort they put in the work they do and I shouldn't be the one to say that they should be given enough to cover the cost of their home, bills and food in their country because if they were to be paid enough to cover all that the company would run bankrupt so it's up to the workers to decide to use part of their salary and a save some of it in order to live a happy life.

    2. Workers should not be overworked because if they are overworked and have no time to rest they will lose passion for what they are doing and the products they produce won't be perfect so I suggest the industry should let the workers work like 11 hours a day and they should be given the weekend to rest and spend time with their family or if not they can work half the 11hours on Saturday.

    3. A good working environment to me means that the worker has to work in a place where he or she feels comfortable. so I think the industry should see to it that they find out what they need in order for to have a good working environment.

    A good working environment has a great breathing atmosphere which means that there aren't any toxic people that make working any difficult for a person, we have incivility in most cases were angry bosses make their workers feel less appreciated. I think that this wrong and based on how much one contributes in his field, it's only fair that he or she is rewarded as such. Working days shouldn't be stressful or so long that family time is neglected, a few holidays are okay and when it comes to payment, I feel that no, workers shouldn't be paid equally. After all, if people have different jobs they should also have different pays. What will stop a fashion designer from becoming a fulltime housekeeper if the pays are the same. This will cause a massive decrease in professionality and create vacancies for the need of certain jobs.

    What does a good work environment mean to you?
    It means to me an ideal environment for work, which endows the employee in his company and increases his loyalty and love for his work and relieves him of pressure when the tasks are heavy, so he feels psychological comfort, such as advancement in dealing with people and preventing hostility between employees and giving the most efficient employees prizes and promotion to reward them for their efforts and there must be team spirit and cooperation between employees

  • accomplished_frog | Beit Hanoun Prep Girls A School | Occupied Palestinian Territory 02 Nov 2022

    Should all workers be paid enough to cover their needs? Yes, this should be done to meet their needs. This is a problem for my country. Salaries are not enough for their basic needs
    How much should a worker work? Depending on the difference in the work or if it is a worker, the commercial worker works for a longer period than an employee of institutions or centers or affiliated with something else
    How much vacation should a person get? The most appropriate two days a week, the worker takes a rest and loves his work even if he is tired. Should every worker get the same? There must be equity among workers except in a few cases.
    My opinion on this is neither for nor against, it varies from one job to another and from one employee to another

  • perceptive_vegetable | Cheam Fields Primary Academy | United Kingdom 02 Nov 2022

    Workers that make clothes should be paid a lot because they spend a lot of time just making clothes when they could be spending time with their family. Their maxim in my opinion would be at least 12 hours or less. Holidays should be only on important days like Christmas, Easter,Halloween,valentines day and summer holidays. every worker should get the same whether they work a little bit or more it should all be equal because the work that they do only a few people in the world can do and some of them is them so they should all get the same. For me a good working environment is a job that everyone is treated equally and a good job which also helps the environment.

  • pioneering_orca | Shouka Prep Girls School | Occupied Palestinian Territory 03 Nov 2022

    I think that working hours should not exceed 14 hours a day, because a person has rights and needs a rest to fill his energy again. And to take at least one day off a week.

  • sceptical_journalist | Shouka Prep Girls School | Occupied Palestinian Territory 03 Nov 2022

    Yes, it must, but on one condition, which is that for every hour spent in the day, a sum of money is taken for it, and they must get money because they are tired, and it is not fair that they do not get enough money. Yes, they should pay more for some jobs than others, because there are some tiring jobs and some are easy. If they give both tiring jobs and easy jobs, it would be unfair to have 6 days and leave every week, which is Friday. No, because some workers work easy jobs and some of them are difficult. To me, "new work environment" means a suitable place, suitable workers and a suitable manager for the company.

  • educated_queen | Futures Hurghada Language School | Egypt 03 Nov 2022

    Working conditions are:

    1. Paying workers fairly mean that workers should be paid based on the effort they put in their jobs. We should pay them an amount of money that would suit them,for example paying their bills and taking care of their houses and children. Some jobs should be paid more than other jobs because some jobs are important to society while others aren't.
    2.The working hours depends on the job that you work.For example a tailor's working hours should not exceed 10 hours .But some jobs differ from others because during the pandemic doctors and nurses spent most of their time taking care of the patients and saving their lives. In the end people are the ones who choose their jobs so they should be responsible for their choices.
    3. A good working environment to me means that a person should work a job that suits him and that he should work in a place where he feels comfortable in. It also means that you should have a helpful manager that rewards you on your great efforts that you put in you work. Having kind and friendly colleagues help people to settle in their jobs quickly .

    Every worker should get his wages in the amount of his fatigue and currency, and all workers must receive sufficient salaries to cover the costs of their homes, bills, and food, and some jobs must pay more because there are tired and hard jobs that deserve more. 8 hours and they must have a day off at the end of the week, and every worker deserves to take the wages he deserves. The salaries must be paid differently because the work of the workers is different. There are tiring work, so the workers are hard, so the workers who do this work must take more salaries than the workers. Their work is simple and not very tiring. The work environment The good is to provide good machines and tools to make the best, and to put minutes of rest for the workers to rest so that they can work better

    A good working environment for me is a place that there is a lot of positive energy and vibe, a place where I feel safe sharing my ideas and getting the cooperation and trust from my colleagues while striving to achieve the set goals. According to research for effective productivity a worker is meant to work for 6 hours but in my opinion I think the method of individuals taking shift is better off reason being that everyone would work equally and efficiently while at the same production is moving.
    Paying workers fairly is a fundamental thought and ideology, decisions related to pay are important as employee experience is largely affected by their salary so its best to pay in relation to how much they work and not the level or position they occupy if this cannot be done there should be a package which covers health, insurance, housing and electricity which is different from the salary that is earned.
    In my country people are payed according to level or position and am neutral to the thought, because based on morals some people say it is right because of respect for elders and level of experience and others may think that based on the level of work is not appropriate because lower rank members tend to do the strenuous work. Both thoughts can be validated but equality can not really be attained rather a level of comfort should be provided to the lower ranked individuals like instead of having vacation once a year they can be given like three times a year or even once a month while those at the top really do not need this, they go on official trips and are given enough comfort.
    If we all did the same exact job with the same exact effort, we could justify everyone getting paid the same but since we are not all professors or engineers or even teachers we definitely can not be payed equally. Every job requires individuals to make sacrifices but at the same time some jobs and the sacrifices being made are more costly than others. Jobs like firefighting, construction workers, pilot and others really put their lives on the line and deserve to be paid more. Am not saying some jobs are not important is the risk involved that should determine the pay.

    When I saw the displayed picture, I thought and found that it is present in one of the series that I watch. There is a worker who distributes the cloth, another is ironing, and another is sewing. Each work is different from the other. Therefore, we will distribute the money according to the work, but I do not think that many workers occupy this position because the work environment is not appropriate and sometimes they increase overtime and sometimes they do not sit on chairs. I think five hours in the morning and five in the evening is enough. It is possible to make workers work three days a week and the rest for other workers. Leaves are supposed to be taken when necessary.

  • cooperative_sea | Beit Hanoun Prep Girls A School | Occupied Palestinian Territory 04 Nov 2022

    Work is a basis in the formation of the personality and the entity of the person. If you love your work, you will be creative, but here we will stand in return for this effort that he makes. Will it be acceptable or not? The nature of work varies from place to place and wages. I also see that having job security is very important because it guarantees the worker his rights and knows his duties Here, the role of the state emerges in enacting laws that guarantee the rights of the worker as well as the rights of the operator. Every profession or job must set a minimum wage that secures a decent life for the worker, such as food, drink, treatment and education, as well as working hours. Creativity will result. Either a good work environment is one that has job security and the absence of threatening factors or job loss and a feeling that there are no barriers to staying at work in the present and the future.

  • mesmerising_swan | Rhemaville Christian Academy | Nigeria 04 Nov 2022

    A good working environment is an environment conducive and suitable for the workers to produce a good output. It is also an environment and a workplace where the workers are safe, there is trust, companionship, team spirit, support and cooperation among them. The workers are also zealous, they are accountable and they have a positive mindset in setting and achieving the goals of the organisation.

  • joyous_guitar | St. Andrew Kaggwa Gombe High school | Uganda 04 Nov 2022

    I'd say that paying workers fairly means like giving a worker enough money to pay for necessities like food and a place to stay.

    I agree that some jobs should be paid more than the other like a person who works in the marketing industry may not be paid the same amount a person in the accounting industry because some of these jobs require more skill than the other. But also it depends on the level a person is on in their department.

    I feel like each worker should at most work 10 hours a day because it would be enough time to get some work done and still have some energy to do some grocery shopping at the end of the day and meet with family. As for how much time they should get for the holiday I think one month a year is enough time to rest and catch up with friends and family.

    A good working environment means like a place that is convenient enough for a worker to do their work perfectly

    In this case, we see the fast fashion workers working 18 hour days, and less money is given to them and this is the exact meaning of unfair paying. Paying fairly means paying someone according to their energy and time used for that job. For example, in Uganda a person who works as doctor should be paid fairly because we are seeing these people having restless nights due to their patients that need to be attended to so, they are spending most of their time to treat people, they really need to be paid fairly.
    A person who works as a janitor in a certain company can't be paid more than a permanent secretary of that company because of their differences in duration of work.
    Then a person should be working for 12 hours that's fair, and someone should have a holiday like every weekend and this should apply to every worker because they are all people who need equal rights.
    A good working environment refer to one working in a comfortable environment and this encourages people to work for example if workers are given holidays every weekend, healthy interaction with co_workers, appreciating the best workers with gifts and so on that is a good working environment and encourages people to work.

  • inventive_night | Lyons Hall Primary School C | United Kingdom 04 Nov 2022

    I think they should pay more money to the designers or make then work less hours

  • great_mango | Beit Hanoun Prep Girls A School | Occupied Palestinian Territory 04 Nov 2022

    I think three days a week, day after day, and this is how he works for 3 days and makes up for 3 days, and Friday is always a break, and every worker must get the same thing so that there is no discrimination and hatred between them.

    A good work environment (a great sentence) I see means activity, cooperation, love, achievement, work and others.

  • cooperative_dolphin | Shouka Prep Girls School | Occupied Palestinian Territory 04 Nov 2022

    What does it mean to pay workers fairly? For example, should all workers be paid enough to cover the costs of their homes, bills, and food in their country? Should some jobs pay more than others? Why and why not? My answer is yes, workers should be paid based on the effort they put in their jobs. We must pay them an amount of money that suits them, for example paying their bills and taking care of their homes and children to live a happy life. Some jobs must be paid more than others because some jobs are important to society while others are not. For example, the profession of a doctor, lawyer or teacher is a difficult profession and a great effort is made and they spend long hours in their work. This requires paying exorbitant wages. As for the carpentry or tailoring profession It is not worth paying exorbitant wages to workers; Because they do not spend long hours in their work. A good work environment is a job that is treated equally, a good job that helps workers to live a happy life.

  • bold_apple | Shouka Prep Girls School | Occupied Palestinian Territory 04 Nov 2022

    I think the workers who work in the garment industry should get a bigger salary because they get tired and work so hard in their work that they spend 18 hours and that time is big for me and others, as a day has 24 hours 12 hours in the day and 12 hours at night will have 6 Only hours left he will use to rest. According to my knowledge, a person should rest 8 hours.
    He had no hours left to spend his spare time and be with his family. Vacation should be on great and important days and one day off per week other than great and important days. In addition, every worker should receive the same salary, and whatever the worker’s kinship or position, and whatever his work is more or less, the same salary should be for all workers.
    “Working environment” means to me that the appropriate and comfortable place for workers and managers, for example, when a company is in a suitable and comfortable place, far from factories and crowded places, so that they know work, where there are many people who do not know work in the noise

  • highspirited_king | St. Andrew Kaggwa Gombe High school | Uganda 04 Nov 2022

    Not all workers should be paid highly because if paid highly the business can run bankrupt depending on their funds and they should be paid according to the jobs they work like depending on how big the jobs add on the business and if the worker is hardworking he/she should at least be given a raise at the end of the month

  • highspirited_king | St. Andrew Kaggwa Gombe High school | Uganda 04 Nov 2022

    A good working environment is when like your surroundings favor you like the people around you are kind, hardworking and co-operative then also the resources around you also favor your job and you have everything that you need

  • highspirited_king | St. Andrew Kaggwa Gombe High school | Uganda 04 Nov 2022

    A worker should work for less than 36 hours in a week which means they would have to work at least 5 hours a day because this enables one to relax at home and do some other activities that make him/her happy and not every worker should be given the same this should depend on how big or heavy their job is. Now if a worker works for 5 hours a day they should be given a 2 week holiday to settle themselves and work on their finances.

  • accurate_wombat | Rhemaville Christian Academy | Nigeria 04 Nov 2022

    To be honest, I feel like better working conditions help us a lot in the sense of division of labour like to be honest the amount of work isn't bad as long as there is division of labour if someone gets the material and someone else handles the arrangements while someone else does the sales it's easier than when someone else does everything. To be honest I feel paying worker according to the amount of work they do is better. Not only the physical health of the worker matter but also the mental health of the workers matter, are they happy where they are working, are they being bullied by fellow workers or are they being treated differently. That matters doesn't it ?

  • enthusiastic_wasp | Lyons Hall Primary School C | United Kingdom 04 Nov 2022

    its unfair for designers really because did you know they only get paid 2 to 4 cents for one pice of clothing where as you sell it for at least 5 to 20 pounds for realy high quality clothes that they spent lots of time on i dont think they would have enough money to feed there family and get a home or electricity and somtimes the clothes they make get thrown out to the dump

  • entrepreneurial_swan | Rex Mill Middle STEM School E | United States of America 04 Nov 2022

    I think paying workers fairly means that the workers get paid the same amount of money. Yes, workers should get paid enough to cover the cost of their home, bills and food in their country because they might be going through a lot and are trying to work for their families. Yes, i think more jobs should get paid more than other because some workers do more than other workers do and it takes more time to do their work but, instead other might do less and get more and that isn't fair to other people. It really depends on how long someone should work because there are different people.
    No, not every worker should get the same amount of money because other workers do more work and parts, some do less some do more.

  • unique_reality | Alkhansaa Prep Co Ed School B | Occupied Palestinian Territory 05 Nov 2022

    Okay then; All workers must take their salary so that they can pay the costs of the house, their bills, clothes and food, and this thing is his right. Also, if he does not take the salary, he will be homeless, also homeless. The workers must also take their salary if they do the same work, so a person should not take his salary more than the other. Also, it is possible that the salary of each work is different from the other because there is more difficult work than another work so the worker takes his salary more since he worked hard and also according to the effort of the worker so if the worker worked hard he will take his full salary so it is agreed that the salary in each work is different from the other. The worker must work according to his work, for example if a doctor will work until the end of the day and then rest and take his usual leave at the end of the week, but if he is sick he can take sick leave until he recovers and if he wants a little rest he can take a vacation to travel or stay at home he does as he wants this from the doctor but if he is a teacher then his work will end when the students go to their homes and can take leave Also as desired. And it means to me a "good work environment" that it be a clean environment in which people work hard and sincerely and that they love their work and are loyal to it.

    A good working environment can make you feel more active, productive, and motivate you to do your job better. It increases your concentration, encourages you to work properly, happily, and makes you feel fresh and boosted. A head full of fresh ideas and the motivation to get them on your plate comes with a good environment. For me, I consider a good environment to be a clean place where there’s no pressure on me and I’m assured that my work will be done justice.
    The time that should be devoted to a task definitely depends on what the task is. A worker might have a job which requires more skill, hence, more time. And if a worker is devoting their skill and time, their pay should be in accordance to that. Equality in work does not come with equality in pay. Jobs can be both mentally and physically exhausting for any working person. AT LEAST all workers should get one holiday per week. A worker should not be burdened with extra work that is out of their capacity. All workers should undoubtedly be paid enough to cover the cost of their basic necessities as it is one very important reason for employment. The basic needs of the workers should strictly be covered by the employer.
    We need to get our workers out of the vulnerability they face because that’s when they get easily exploited.

    First: Should a sufficient salary be given to the family's requirements? Yes, a sufficient salary must be obtained for necessities and household expenses, because he is already working day and night for his family and to meet their needs (food, cleaning supplies, clothes, etc........) then every worker must be given his right of money
    Should some jobs be paid more than others? From my point of view, yes, in some jobs the work is very stressful and difficult. A person who works is spending more energy than he can, and he is entitled to a high salary because he will take money according to what he has worked and worked hard

  • committed_tsunami | Beit Hanoun Prep Girls A School | Occupied Palestinian Territory 05 Nov 2022

    Secondly, that the worker works daily from 5 hours to 7 hours more, because if he works more than this, he will be very tired
    How much leave must be obtained? I think in this question that the worker who worked the hardest two days has a day off and they are daily (Friday, Saturday) to give the worker his right to rest and his right to talk to his children etc........ ........
    Also, here, not all workers should get the same amount of leave. It is possible that workers have two days off and workers on one day off, because it is possible that the worker is not exhausted or tiring, as he does not make efforts as the worker does who works seven hours a day
    Finally, a good work environment is one in which it is good to work and in which there are job opportunities for all workers and they give everyone his right.

  • poetic_banana | Shouka Prep Girls School | Occupied Palestinian Territory 07 Nov 2022

    Should all workers receive adequate salaries to cover the costs of their homes, bills and food in their country? That salary must not be according to the work in which the person works, for example, if the work is too tired and needs a brilliant and intelligent person to be paid a large wage such as the secretary, deputy director and permanent teacherBut if the work is normal and not too tired it is the opposite. How much should a workday be? How much time should someone get? He gets one day off a week I think is right.What does "good work environment" mean for you? It means that the work is good for me and the staff and the manager as well and the salary is good for the work I work on as well as the holidays.

  • charismatic_eel | Govt. Shuhada-e-APS Model Girls High School A | Pakistan 08 Nov 2022

  • fiery_raisin | Boutcher CofE Primary A | United Kingdom 08 Nov 2022

    1.Paying workers fairly means that people are paid a good salary that is fair and definitely more than 35 cents. Workers should be paid enough so they can get: food, a home, water and electricity. If they are not paid directly, the company should pay for these things and then give the salary that they can use on things they want. Some jobs should be payed more than others depending on: how important they are and how much work people put into it.

    2.A worker should work for a minimum of 6 hours (I think that, others may disagree) or more depending on how much the worker wants to work for. Someone should probably have at least 40 days of paid holiday. If workers contribute more they should be paid more, if someone’s job is harder than the other jobs in that company, they should be paid more.

    3.A good working environment to me means: people are not crammed into tiny spaces; that would definitely be a bad working environment. People should be treated ethically and should not be yelled at by their boss.

  • idealistic_song | St. Andrew Kaggwa Gombe High school | Uganda 08 Nov 2022

    Paying workers fairly means that they should be paid according to the effort they put in the work and according to the amount of work given to them plus the time they use to make sure that the work is done.
    Workers shouldn't be overworked because if they are overworked and have no time to rest they will lose passion for what they are doing and if they lose passion for what they are doing the company will lose employees and production will have to reduce or stop. I suggest that workers should at least work 11hour a day on weekdays and half of the 11hours on Saturday then Sunday they rest and have time with their families.
    A good working environment is a place where the worker feels valued and what way do the companies make their customers feel valued;
    1. By organizing appraisals where they give out awards for the most hardworking employee (EMPLOYEE OF THE MONTH) which will even help the rest to work harder.
    2. By organizing end of year parties for the employees to have fun and celebrate their achievements for that year and also giving them cash bonuses when going forholidays.

  • amazing_computer | Rhemaville Christian Academy | Nigeria 09 Nov 2022

    1. To determine the pay of a worker certain factors must be considered. Such factors include:
    a. The cost of living in a place: The pay of a worker should be in concord with the cost of living of that particular place.
    b. Experience of a worker: A very experienced worker should be paid more than workers having little or no experience. For example: people that have put in more years into working in an organization should be paid more than those just starting work in an organization
    c. Risk involved in the work to be done: A work with lots of risks involved should attract a higher pay to those with little risk involved. For example: a firefighter should be paid more because of the amount of risk involved in the work.
    d. Amount of time put into the work: Workers should be paid according to the amount of time spent on the work. Shifts should be used in organizations so that all workers get to work and have rest while production continues. In the case where a worker insists on wanting to work extra hours in order to make more money, I feel the worker should be allowed but the worker should not be made to work more than 12 hours and the pay that will be given to the workers for working extra hours should be given in full and employers should not try to cheat the workers.
    e. Amount of energy put into the work: If the work is very strenuous and energy draining the worker should be paid more

    If a worker is paid with all the factors above put into consideration, then that worker, in my opinion has been paid fairly but if not the pay for that worker is not fair.

    2. A worker should not work for too long on one hand the organization should not force workers to work for a long period of time like 18 hours. I think workers should be divided to work in shifts of maybe 6 hours each. But on the other, if a worker wants to work multiple shifts to earn extra money, he/she should be allowed to with the appropriate pay given for the extra work, but he/she should not be allowed to work more than 12 hours a day for the sake of every worker's health.
    Every worker should have the same amount of holiday because it is fair but I feel the holidays should be given at different time intervals so that work can continue to move. According to, www.gov.uk/holiday-entitlement-rights,
    'Most workers who work a 5-day week must receive at least 28 days’ paid annual leave a year. This is the equivalent of 5.6 weeks of holiday.' I think this is an acceptable amount of time holiday time for workers and it should be enforced in companies.

    3. To me a good working environment is a workplace that encourages the happiness, safety, progress and growth for its employees. Things that make up this good environment are things like a comfortable working space, good interaction with co-workers and superiors, a good pay, fair and equal treatment to all workers, a good holiday period to enable workers relax fully. I think these things should be present in any organization that claims to provide a good working environment for workers

    Paying workers fairly well means giving every worker amount of money that can satisfy them according to their working class. Every worker, in my opinion should be paid money that can cater for their personal needs as much as an employer can. I can't say that all jobs should be paid the same, but every worker must get what they put in for the prosperity of their jobs.
    In my say, a worker should work for ten hours. In Uganda teachers work for officially ten hours and the rest is extension, but the working contract should also be considered. So, workers should work for the time agreed upon in their contracts. Workers should be given holiday for at least one week every month to get time and spend quality time with their families. I also say that all people are the same so they should be given the same working time so as to show equality.

    What does “a good working environment” mean to you?

    "A good working environment" mean to me that the employees/workers feel safe and is fine with doing the job, also that they do it correctly with no problems at all and get paid fairly by what they are doing and how long they do it.

  • rational_knowledge | Shouka Prep Girls School | Occupied Palestinian Territory 10 Nov 2022

    I think that workers are supposed to be paid normally,which means that each worker gets the salary or wages that they there are other jobs that deserve more or less salary, and this is due to the nature of the work the worker does. A worker who spends long long hours at work is supposed to get more than a worker who spends fewer hours. This is the fair and secure form of paying workers wages to cover the costs of their homes bills and food in their country modern machines must be provided in the work place in order to save time and effort. Instead of working for 18 hours, they must work for 6hours at most and the salary must be bobbled for worker's who work hard and diligently .Instead of taking and 35 Cents,they take 60Cets,and there must do be a weekly vacation instead of a vacation every month. As for a good work environment it should be suitable for avoiding negative thoughts, psychological pressures and ben signs,and getting. Closer to positive thoughts inorder to lncrease feeling of self _Confidence, comfort and reassurance ,and this suggestion increases the speed of the worker's intellectual and industrial production

    A good working environment for me is a place that there is a lot of positive energy and vibe, a place where I feel safe sharing my ideas and getting the cooperation and trust from my colleagues while striving to achieve the set goals. According to research for effective productivity a worker is meant to work for 6 hours but in my opinion I think the method of individuals taking shift is better off reason being that everyone would work equally and efficiently while at the same production is moving.
    Paying workers fairly is a fundamental thought and ideology, decisions related to pay are important as employee experience is largely affected by their salary so its best to pay in relation to how much they work and not the level or position they occupy if this cannot be done there should be a package which covers health, insurance, housing and electricity which is different from the salary that is earned.
    In my country people are payed according to level or position and am neutral to the thought, because based on morals some people say it is right because of respect for elders and level of experience and others may think that based on the level of work is not appropriate because lower rank members tend to do the strenuous work. Both thoughts can be validated but equality can not really be attained rather a level of comfort should be provided to the lower ranked individuals like instead of having vacation once a year they can be given like three times a year or even once a month while those at the top really do not need this, they go on official trips and are given enough comfort.
    If we all did the same exact job with the same exact effort, we could justify everyone getting paid the same but since we are not all professors or engineers or even teachers we definitely can not be payed equally. Every job requires individuals to make sacrifices but at the same time some jobs and the sacrifices being made are more costly than others. Jobs like firefighting, construction workers, pilot and others really put their lives on the line and deserve to be paid more. Am not saying some jobs are not important is the risk involved that should determine the pay.

  • secure_theory | St. Andrew Kaggwa Gombe High school | Uganda 10 Nov 2022

    The salary of a job should be determined by how much your occupation generates, an occupation that generates 200$ cant earn an employee 300$ there are many things that determine pay and how much employers can profit, n the US the minimum wage is 7$ per hour but some times employers take a high percentage of the income and leave the employee with a very minimum salary this caused specifically to make products cheaper by reducing the cost of labor just how sweatshops produce copies of major fashion brand companies to make them more affordable.
    I believe a worker needs to have 3 breaks in a day each being at least 30 minutes to have meals and refresh themselves for the other period of work.And i believe every job should respect all public holidays and also give some workers breaks once in a while due to family,medical both mental and physical and also a travel break at least once a year.
    A good working environment is a place with good health conditions and comfortable condition and a worker should be free to express him/herself and a good employer with a wage that can accommodate all the basic needs.

    1. I think that people should get as much money 💴 as they put into their job if they don’t they will probably get less money because there leader won’t pay them much

    2.I think that they should not have to work on long hours if they work really hard and they would have to work long hours if they don’t work as hard and they were lazy
    3. A good working environment is that everyone is comfortable with there working space

    Workers’ leave must be according to the nature of work, health and family conditions, and maternity and paternity leave must be approved

  • successful_crow | Rhemaville Christian Academy | Nigeria 12 Nov 2022

    For me a good working environment is a place where there is unity, trust, integrity and cooperation amongst the people working together. Where there is good vibe with every worker youll notice that work will be faster and easier because everybody is being creative and not keeping their ideas to themselves because of one or two reasons. A good working environment is a place where you know you can can have peace of mind in that area knowing fully well that no one will argue with for a particular reason and no one will steal the project youve been working on for a long time. A good working environment is a place that is hygienic to you in the sense of your mental health. When you work in a suitable and conducive environment youll notice that youll be more focused on your work and you wont stress your brain thinking and pondering on ideas. For me it is a place where you can gain your self good reputation.

  • daring_cherry | St. Andrew Kaggwa Gombe High school | Uganda 12 Nov 2022

    In my view, fast fashion industry workers suffer most since they work for long hours and are paid less compared to the to the energy and time they put in. However, its also not fair to say that all workers be paid the same way cause paying fairly follows terms like how long one works and how much he puts in. A person with an essential job like a doctor can not be paid the same money as with a non essential like a gardener, janitor or hairdresser because there is a huge difference in their hours of working and input for example you could find that a doctors spends a maximum of 5 hours off his job since he is always working on saving lives some thing that needs maximum attention and focus whereas a janitor spends a few hours working since most even work in shifts. So following the odds, you have to pay these people accordingly.
    For the working hours, I think a worker should work for a minimum of 10 hours and a maximum of 15 hours plus a five day working course so that one rests over the weekend, this time frame is fair for a worker since it allows them to have enough time for themselves and family. This working time frame should be the same for all since it allows them equal rights as workers and people as a whole.
    To me, a good working environment would be an environment where workers are allowed to work at their pace without too much pressure and stress for example if there is a lot of pressure at work, workers will end up having less time for their families and themselves something you would consider uncomfortable and unhealthy. A good working environment is also one that encourages workers to strive the good cause for example giving workers advance payments, thank you parties, timely leaves due to worker's personal issues, promotions to better positions and raise in payments. A good working environment would best be described in such a way

  • delightful_road | Govt. Shuhada-e-APS Model Girls High School A | Pakistan 14 Nov 2022

    A stress-free workplace is important to everyone. I think that normally a person should work for about 7-8 hours per day. Working for 10-15 hours not only destroys your health, but you also can't devote much time to your family and yourself. And after having a tireful week a person deserves a peaceful weekend which should be up to 2 days. Everyone is equal no one is less or more everyone deserves a fair salary. And yeah maybe some jobs should be paid more than others because it may depend on their working conditions and how much they work.

  • sociable_desert | Bal Bharati Public school B | India 15 Nov 2022

    Paying fairly for me, doesn't just mean paying a fair amount. I feel fairness should be there in terms of gender as well. Paying a worker as one's responsibility, capability, and work load is important but it must not differ for women. The wages should be the same for both men and women if they are doing the same amount of work for the same time.

    paying workers fairly means that the salary can let them afford their home bills, to sleep with a full stomach, and being able to save some money for emergency situations or going to a vacation. A worker should work around 8- 12 hours a day, to have the rest for sleeping, relaxing and making daily life routines, as mentioned in the example some workers work 18 hours a day, so will have 6 hours for themselves by this time they can barely sleep, they won't have time to eat, relax or go shop. So this lead the workers to be in extreme fatigue, be less productive and not to work from their heart with passion, which can devastatingly affect the company. Last but not least, a good working environment for me means to have a comfortable interval of work time of a day, to have a weekend, to have a salary that cam cover life costs and finally to have a friendly connection between the principal of the company.

    1. Paying workers fairly means that u should pay them according to the effort they put in the work they do and I shouldn't be the one to say that they should be given enough to cover the cost of their home, bills and food in their country because if they were to be paid enough to cover all that the company would run bankrupt so it's up to the workers to decide to use part of their salary and a save some of it in order to live a happy life.

    2. Workers should not be overworked because if they are overworked and have no time to rest they will lose passion for
    what they are doing and the products they produce won't be perfect so I suggest the industry should let the workers work like 11 hours a day and they should be given the weekend to rest and spend time with their family or if not they can work half the 11hours on Saturday.

    3. A good working environment to me means that the worker has to work in a place where he or she feels comfortable. so I think the industry should see to it that they find out what they need in order for to have a good working environment.

    The problems we need to solve in sweatshops are the people working are too young and they get paid 3 cent per hour because the cost of living has increased. They have working conditions such as poor air quality and extreme heat. Also, I believe that the Nike, Addidas and Puma buyers need to contact them by email to improve the working conditions and pay them more to keep us buying their product. Consumers need to step up and share their voice.

  • loved_octopus | Ormiston Bushfield Academy | United Kingdom 18 Nov 2022

    I believe that all workers should be paid fairly and equally because the cost-of-living crisis, even in higher income countries, is putting house bills and food prices higher and without being paid fairly people in the lower income countries start to struggle more, and poverty will become a bigger problem across the world. If we look at the sustainable development goals, the main ones are poverty and hunger... and if we think about it, how are we meant to resolve these issues, if people are not being paid the right amount to do so? I also believe because of this issue workers may start to go on strike we will not be able to receive the clothing that we want. As someone from a higher income country we acknowledge that we need to pay more for our products or stop wasting them on fast fashion.

I think these things should be present in any organization that claims to provide a good working environment for workers.

    1.Paying workers fairly means that the workers/fashion designers should get paid on what they make or how much effort they put in to making that cloth.Workers should get paid between 100-200Dollars but of course it depends on what they made.

    2.In my opinion a worker should work 8-10 hours a day and they should be allowed to get 2 days off a week.And every worker should get the same rules and opportunities as everyone else beacause they deserve it.

    For many people, the desire for a higher salary is a major motivating factor in looking for a new job. Although this is not the only consideration, if you can make more money doing the same work elsewhere, it is at least worth exploring your options. But to do this, you must first believe that you can get paid more for the same work.

    According to a recent study, most people grossly underestimate what people earn in similar jobs elsewhere. Researchers believe that this hinders people from searching for better-paying jobs, or higher pay in return for doing the same work they currently do, noting that this is particularly harmful to those with low incomes.

    Have you ever wondered: Why do you enter “fast fashion” stores and buy from them, without your awareness, a significant number of fashion? And how many times have you looked at your closet stacked with this type of clothes, yet you can't find what to wear for a particular occasion? Have you ever wondered: What prompted you to buy it? Especially after its fashion has gone out of fashion even before you wear it and benefit from it? If this is the case, then you are not alone, and there are others who suffer like you from the “fast fashion” epidemic, which is very similar to the “fast food” phenomenon.

Personally good working conditions should look like this, first a worker should get 30$ a day to be able to live a normal life (especially if the worker has a family). Second, workers should have about 10 hrs a day of work while have breaks in between (half an hour break should be enough).

    A good working environment is such in which employer listens nd fulfill the salary requirements of workers the employees feel a sense of confidence nd trust working for his boss in such environment every one works honestly nd sincerely .such workers dont need not to b supervised whether they r working or cheating .. besides a fix amount of salary workers should b offered incentives nd financial aids to fulfill big needs like if workers daughters is goin to b welder the worker need some type of loan to make his Newhouse etc.
    The ideal working hours r 8with one holiday per week so that the person could take proper rest to get ready for next days working.
    In my surrounding home r getting reasonable wages like tailors in big boutiques nd with designers they r in very much demand due to rising fashion trends but some workers like sweepers nd other sanitary staff r not getting enough money becoz in my country for this no skill is required any needy uneducated nd unskillful person is willing to do this becoz they can not survive even they dont do these tasks .even they r better people as thy know the dignity of work .

    Firstly i highly resist that worker are paid less than their needs that's really bad at least they should be paid enough to run their house cycle.
    It really seems that these workers don't have another choice of work and that's the thing of which their owner takes the advantage and utilize them more than their power.
    And secondly how long should a worker work?
    I think for a work 8 to 10 hours are enough for enough. I can't say it clearly but as being a student i think i could feel their pain. I just spend 6 and half hour in my school and got so tired to that I can't do any other co curricular activities . I just have to study by sitting but the workers have to work a hard work and for 18 hours this should be highly restricted.

    I think workers should be paid according to there level of productivity and quality of the production, if all workers are to be paid enough to cover their basic needs this may run the company dry and bankrupt however it would be necessary for the workers to receive medical insurance from the company for both them and family minimal wages are at times set by the government to ensure that workers get enough money to get them basic needs and day to day services .
    some jobs should be paid more depending on the filled , time and what they are dealing with , the time taken to learn and the experience a person has got from the years he /she has been in the business in the job .
    I think a working day should be eight hours a day in shifts because the human body gets week and needs rest from time to time minus the international holidays and emergency Brecks one mustn't have that much of a holiday . Women could be acceptable to have holidays when pregnant due to there venerability .
    A good working environment means that the working environment is less harsh with breaks time to time for lunch or have a rest , a clean healthy environment where worker's health is considered and valued .
    With all that I say workers shouldn't be over worked .
    thank you

  • bustling_sea | Byfleet Primary School | United Kingdom 25 Nov 2022

    Heres what i think is acceptable for working conditions when it comes to fast fashion.

    1.They need to get paid more:
    The workers that make the clothes only get paid up to 2-4 cents or 1-3 pence for every item of clothing made,so they would be lucky to get £3 or 3$ every week!
    In these payment conditions, there moneys at their mouth, this means most of their money goes too food, and not much of it,they will have no spare money,this is unfair considering thats about 0.01% of the money made at the companys.

    A good working environment will lift the spirits of the employees. A conducive working environment will boost them to contribute their best consistently. It’s the positive vibe that a place gives to the people, and their reciprocation makes for an ideal workplace
    Let me share some of the benefits of a good working environment.
    1. One of the biggest factors in employee productivity is how they feel about their job and workplace.
    2. A good working environment can make all the difference in whether or not an employee feels motivated, satisfied, and valued by their employer.
    3. A good environment can help employees feel valued and appreciated, which can lead to high levels of engagement, productivity, and retention.
    4. Good working environments can also improve morale, reduce stress and burnout, and facilitate collaboration among team members.

    1_ Give them an amount at a price higher than 45 cents per piece, so we suggest, for example, a dollar per piece.
    2_ Granting them holidays over the course of the month, not the year. Let us assume three holidays in a month, that is, according to three consensus, every Friday is a day off, and it is more appropriate for it to be Sunday.
    3_ Reducing working hours from 18 to 12 hours a day, i.e. half the day.
    Thus, workers are attracted to the grants and opportunities provided, so that their performance becomes higher and with greater creativity, and they present their work with the utmost love and appreciation.

    1. Paying workers firmly means nonresidential long-term care workers are paid 80% of the average national hourly wage.
    2. yes workers should be paid enough to cover their homes family etc. but it is still likely not enough to cover enough of all that unless you work one of those really good paying jobs.
    3. Well I think not because if jobs got paid more than other jobs that wouldn't be very equal also some people get those jobs with big cash because when they go to interviews and they ask for resume it says what there thing is about then they decide and sometimes its not always yes.

    In conclusion these are my reasons.

    Paying workers fairly means that they should be paid for how much work they put in, for example people who work very hard should get paid more than people who slack off. Workers should get enough to cover bills, food, and their homes. Jobs that are considered more professional than others, then they should get paid more. A worker should work for at least 4-5 hours. Hard Working workers can have 4 off on the holidays, but workers who slack off should have 2-3 days off. Every worker should not get the same, because it's unfair to pay hard working workers the same amount that slacking workers get. A good working environment to me is a working environment with nice, hard working, cooperating workers.

    A good working environment and a good pay would make working condition acceptable, I feel like the condition that the workers are going through isn't right, there working a dirty factories, And their pay isn't good either, they should get paid for what they made. In the video the women made a dress and got paid 60 cents put her design got sold for 60 dollars. This pay effects how they pay for their homes, food, children, wants and needs.

    In my opinion paying workers fairly means when you pay the worker the time they do. I think some jobs that deal with chemical things should be paid more due to health issues, I think workers should work for at least 9 or 5 hours maybe 9 and 12 hours but of course with breaks. In my opinion a good working environment is when the employee doesn't deal with toxic things and if they did they of course have the gear to use it and they get at least two breaks and they get paid the amount they work

    How much should a worker work? For example, how long should the working day be? How much holiday should someone have? Should every worker get the same? Why or why not?
    Yes every workers should get same holiday. If there is no any discrimination between any kind of work regarding holiday, salary, people will be influenced and will be ready for working any kind of works.

    Paying workers fairly I think means that someone should be payed according to what he or she produces for example these people who work in the fast fashion factories should be paid much because the price of the clothes they produce is high and they are on a high demand these people also wirk for long hours so I think if they are to be paid the least should be enough to cover for there home expenses the least not what they should be paid. In my opinion i say some jobs should be payed more than the others because some jobs are more valuable than others for example some body who cleans the hospital can not be paid the same as the doctor who works there, there effort is different and the need for there work is different. I think the maximum hours one should work for is 10 hours except for those jobs that can not abide from working for longer hours like the doctors and others and people who work should get day offs and holidays like the weekend holidays they should atleast get 1 day off a week and weekend holidays except for doctors who don't have to work everyday and they work on appointment so for them they have no foular of working but some times they also get weekend holidays. A good working environment to means means a wurking space that is worker friendly for example an environment that can inspire a worker to do greater thing tkae an example the fast fashion factories or the sweet shops there working environment is not good because one is worked for longer hours and over worked no holidays and little pay but for a good wirking environment one can get weekend holidays and dayoofs atleast eveyday, work for sustainable hours and also get enough payor wage one also get awards fir pitting more efforts than the hours those are the characteristics of a good working environment to me.

    A fair wage is a wage that is considered “fair” by the employee. This salary, received in return for individual work performed, will encourage the employee to invest more or less in their daily tasks, but also to keep their current job for longer or less time. The employee makes a real trade-off between the level of salary they receive and the quantity and difficulty of their day-to-day responsibilities.
    I feel most jobs should not be paid the same because Some jobs pay more than others because of the demand of the job, location of the job, industry, level of education, and experience required for the job. For example, a doctor is paid more than a waiter. Why? It's because you need higher education to become a doctor.
    The countries with the highest average working hours are also the ones with the lowest productivity. And those where work days are the shortest are the most productive. As well, there are also studies saying that companies that impose their employees daily working hours are also less productive. Scientists generally agree that the ideal daily working time is around 6 hours, and more concentrated in the morning. This is what is being practiced in Sweden, and they are currently experiencing significant success.
    I think that every worker should get a good amount of holiday, rest, and should be able to spent quality time with friends, family, and loved ones. Most workers who work a 5-day week must receive at least 28 days paid annual leave a year. This is the equivalent of 5.6 weeks of holiday.
    And a positive work environment is something that makes employees feel good about coming to work every day, and also motivates them constantly to sustain them throughout the day and give their best effort.
