Introducing The Minimum Wage Dress

My wallet thanks you, The British shopping website has created the MWD (Minimum Wage Dress) for all of those whose salaries are scraping the bottom of the barrel. The cut-out mini-shift goes for £3.68, the hourly minimum wage for teens in Britain. For us Americans, that totals about $5.68 – or a splurge at Forever 21. And while we agree with Refinery 29 that this minuscule price for working British teens might mean lower wages for working non-British teens, the company denies any sketchy business in production: “We fully support British manufacturing and are dedicated to working with UK-based suppliers, despite being able to source cheaper production rates overseas.” Still, the MWD is a hit already. Two of the four colors are already out of stock on the website. What else can you expect for a country that regards pricy TopShop as a bargain? [Refinery 29]
