My wallet thanks you, SheLikes.com. 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]
