Supermarkets – Who Pays?

Posted by on February 29th, 2008

Bill is currently supporting a campaign based on ActionAid’s report “Who Pays? How British supermarkets are keeping women workers in poverty”. The report looks at the impact that the supermarket price wars have had on the developing countries who supply them with products, and calls for supermarkets to publicly commit to international workers’ rights and fairer buying practices. To find out more about the report visit the Action Aid website.

Bill has produced his own video for the campaign which you can watch here, with an opportunity for you to sign up at the end. You can even make your own campaign video using Bill’s narration and prove to the big supermarkets that you really ain’t gonna be their bitch.
