Why would a company partner with their closest competitor? Because they want to do business differently. Nisolo and ABLE have teamed up to share the lowest wages in their supply chains respectively. They say they are doing this because, "We believe one of the most important steps brands can take next towards living wages is openly sharing their lowest wages."
I can't think of many companies that could match this type of transparency. I think that Jesus would be thankful for a company who is making efforts towards lifting the lowest workers into and above a living wage. If He were going to buy shoes, who would He purchase shoes from?
Even though these Nisolo shoes might be considered "luxury" items, sometimes good stewardship means it's okay to buy "luxury".
