With regard to the row over Jeremy Corbyn campaign T-shirts having been made in Bangladesh by low paid workers:

Claiming that the garment workers were paid 30p an/ hour as though this is some terrible abuse, is utterly meaningless.

We are talking about a country where both wages and the cost of living are far less than in the United Kingdom.

What is the actual average rate of pay for unskilled machinists in Bangladesh ?

Who exactly is trying to use such a pathetic manipulation of numbers to attempt to discredit the leader of Her Majesty’s opposition?
