Would a fair toy not be very expensive?
Even though many companies list this argument for not implementing a code of conduct the answer is NO!
This claim is ridiculous, especially if you look at it in more detail. Wages for toy workers producing a Barbie doll make up only 0.8% of the overall production costs. If wages were doubled and this increase directly transmitted to the final consumer, a Barbie doll would cost 15.05 EURO instead of 15 EURO. On top of that, these wage increases should not be paid by the consumers, but by the brand company, which receives the biggest part of the profit (diagram for the Barbie doll cost distribution).
