On Thursday 13 July 2017, Matrix hosted an event to celebrate the recent publication of a report into the living wage, acknowledge the contributors and share their plans going forward.

This report was initially launched by The Lawyers Circle, in partnership with TrustLaw and the Clean Clothes Campaign, at the Copenhagen Fashion Summit on Thursday 11 May 2017. It sets out the legal argument that a living wage is a fundamental human right, and companies and governments have a responsibility to uphold this right. The report has been developed with the assistance of a team of lawyers, led by Jessica Simor QC, based in fourteen countries where large scale retailers source garment production, and examines the relevant labour laws and regulations as well as their implementation and control mechanisms.
