Living WageAdd to Lightbox Download
Several reports suggest that the rentals fees per square meter in the slum areas, now are higher than in more central middle class areas. But those areas have limitations on how crowded you can live and its hard to just renat a small room or one room apartment. The minimum wages was raised in 2013 in Bangladesh, but the living wage, whats left to live on after expenses, is actually lower now than before 10 years ago, according to the women in 7 story slum in central Dhaka.
