Fair Wear works to eliminate the exploitation of homeworkers (outworkers) in the Australian clothing industry. Recognizing that sweatshops are just as much of an issue at home as abroad, the FairWear campaign actively encourages Australians to think critically about where the clothes we wear are produced and under what conditions.

Homeworkers are mostly women who make clothes at home in Australia for as little as $2 to $3 an hour. They often work up to 18 hours a day, 7 days a week. Homeworkers make clothes for our major retailers, designers and even suppliers of school uniforms. It is estimated that there are 300,000 outworkers in Australia today.

As individuals and as a community we make a difference and at Fair Wear we aim to provide you with the tools to address these injustices occurring here in Australia.
