Suppliers will pay at least the minimum wage or the appropriate prevailing wage, whichever is higher, comply with all legal requirements on wages, and provide any fringe benefits required by law or contract. Where compensation does not meet workers’ basic needs and provide some discretionary income, Suppliers will work with the Fair Labor Association to take appropriate actions that seek to progressively realize a level of compensation that does. Suppliers may not use deductions from wages or other monetary fines as a disciplinary practice.
