Living Wage for Rural Dominican Republic

with Focus on Banana Growing Area in the North


This paper estimates a living wage for rural Dominican Republic with a focus on the banana growing region in the Northern part of the country. It uses a new methodology developed by the authors that builds and improves on their earlier work on living wages published by ILO (see Anker, 2006 and Anker, 2011). This new methodology has been used so far to estimate a living wage for urban areas in 9 countries for a multi-national corporation as well as for rural areas of Western Cape Provence South Africa for Fairtrade International (Fairtrade). The present report for Dominican Republic was supported by Fairtrade and Social Accountability (SAI) as part of their memorandum with GoodWeave.
