10 Centimes - Investis dans l'étiquité! - un salaire de subsistance pour tous www.10centimes.ch Même après 13 heures d'un travail difficile, cette couturière ne touche pas un salaire suffisant pour couvrir ses besoins de base. La nourriture, le loyer, les médicaments l'argent gagné ne suffit pas. Il ne s'agit pas d'un cas isolé. Pour 30 millions d'ouvrières et ouvriers de l'industrie textile, les salaires de misère et les innombrables heures supplémentaires font partie du quotidien. On parle de salaires de misère parce qu'en Asie, s'il est payé, le salaire minimum fixé par la loi ne couvre que 20 à 60% des besoins de base. Et les conséquences sont désastreuses : malnutrition, peu ou pas d'argent pour l'éducation et les soins médicaux, pas de temps pour s'occuper des enfants. Qui est responsable ? Les pays producteurs, comme le Bangladesh, la Chine et l'Inde, se livrent un combat acharné pour décrocher les contrats de l'industrie textile. C'est pourquoi les gouvernements fixent le salaire minimum en-dessous du salaire de subsistance. Les vêtements sont fabriqués là où les coûts de production sont les plus faibles. Et pendant que l'industrie textile profite des salaires minimums et voit ses bénéfices augmenter, des millions de couturières vivent toujours dans des conditions inhumaines. Une petite somme ferait déjà une grande différence. 10 centimes de salaire en plus par T-shirt permettrait aux couturières de vivre dignement, plutôt que dans la pauvreté. Pourtant, 99% des ...
10 Rappen - Investition in Fairness - Existenzlohn für alle www.10rappen.ch Auch nach 13 Stunden harter Arbeit erhält die Näherin kaum genug Lohn um damit Ihren Lebensunterhalt zu decken. Egal ob Lebensmittel, Miete oder Medikamente, das Geld reicht nicht aus. Das ist kein Einzelfall. Für 30 Millionen Arbeiterinnen und Arbeiter der Kleider-Industrie gehören Hungerlöhne und unzählige Überstunden zum Alltag. Hungerlöhne, weil zum Beispiel in Asien der gesetzlich festgelegte Mindestlohn gerade mal 20 bis 60% der Lebenskosten deckt, falls der Mindestlohn überhaupt ausbezahlt wird. Und die Folgen sind Schlechte Ernährung, kaum Geld für Schulbildung sowie Medizinische Versorgung und praktisch keine Zeit für die Kinderbetreuung. Wer ist Schuld? Unter den Kleiderherstellenden Ländern wie Bangladesch, China und Indien herrscht ein erbitterter Kampf um die Aufträge der Kleider-Industrie. Deshalb setzen die Regierungen den Mindestlohn tiefer als den Existenzlohn an. Denn Kleider werden dort produziert, wo es am günstigsten ist. Und während die Kleider-Industrie von den Mindestlöhnen profitiert und ihren Gewinn steigert, leben Millionen von Näherinnen nach wie vor ein unmenschliches Leben. Dabei würde bereits ein kleiner Betrag einen grossen Unterschied machen. Nur 10 Rappen mehr Lohn pro T-Shirt würden reichen, um den Näherinnenihnen ein Leben in Würde statt Armut zu ermöglichen. Doch 99% der Kleiderfirmen sind nicht bereit, einen Existenzlohn zu bezahlen. Wir fordern: 10 Rappen für ...

The promotions of Wake Up Sid have begun! And now that the proms and trailers are running full-fledged, it is obvious anyone and everyone have has watched the promos as well as the ad campaign in newspapers. This is the story of Siddharth Mehra (Ranbir Kapoor), a lazy, unmotivated slacker from Mumbai whose life undergoes a series of changes after taking his final year college exams. Sid's world is breezy, carefree, and without any true responsibilities. The most important elements in his life are his friends, his camera, his car, and his X-box 360. Undoubtedly the content is very fresh and the promotions are very innovative. Ranbir Kapoor, the protagonist of Wake Up Sid seems to be simply amazing in the film. And to stand up to someone like Konkona Sen Sharma is no mean achievement. The best part is, the chemistry is interesting and the unconventional casting works for the film. Wake Up Sid marks the directorial debut of Ayan Mukherjee, brother of the popular Bollywood actress Rani Mukherjee. The movie is scheduled to release on October 2, 2009.

The Sophie Lancaster Foundation is a charity that aims to promote the positive nature of different subcultures, to campaign for tolerance within society, and to provide a lasting legacy for Sophie, a young, intelligent, caring and beautiful girl who was murdered, simply because she dressed differently. Sophie Lancaster and her boyfriend Robert Maltby were savagely attacked in August 2007 without provocation, by a group of teenage boys. Robert was beaten unconscious then the youths turned on Sophie who was cradling her boyfriend, trying to protect him. The attacks were brutal and described by the leading police officer in the case as one of the most violent murders he has come across in his lengthy career. The five violent offenders received sentences ranging from four years to life. They showed no remorse. Sophie (S tamp Out Prejudice Hatred + Intolerance Everywhere) would like to raise awareness of the Foundation and seek support for its core aims educating young people to celebrate diversity, as well as bring about a change in the Hate Crime legislation to include attacks on alternative cultures. Sophie Lancaster was a caring, sensitive and intelligent girl who was murdered because she was different.
