Distribution plan --> Larger Image
So far, I only got a very general pricing for my design that if they are produce in China. I prefer my design to produce locally in each region to cut down shipping cost.
for 5000 pieces, it would cost 50cents(color, 12 pages ) ~ $1 (with extra UV coat, thicker papers).
This week, I am getting quote for my specific layout, the price for laser cutting or die cutting, and cost for assembly.
Ideally, I think government should help with the cost of production and the distribution, since that is what tax is all about, helping citizens to have better life. However, I also developed a system so my design can be share to NFPs easily, and for NFP to have enough financial to produce the design.

My system, Contract+ provides open-source templates for any individual or organizations to produce the design for their own need. They can customize the text to their languages, and adjust infomation according to their local labor contract law.
Contract+ will also provide infomation of best materials to produce the design in relation to each regions' local resource. (type of paper, recycle or non-recycle)
Contract+ will help organization to calculate cost analysis, so the cost can be reduce to their affordable budget. (where to manufacture, type of paper, color or black&white, size of design...etc)
NGOs for labors
NGOs needs to prepare and organize the infomation to the workers that they are targeting to. (what kind and how much of infomation in their prefer languages)
NGOs can also ask for donations and educate the existing workers that are connect to the organization.
Many labor unions required membership fee, and their funding might only provided for membership workers only. However, low-income migrant workers that I am targeting to might not have extra money to apply for unions. Since there are many consulting service for workers that are supported by Catholic churches, I think it is a good idea to have funding from churches.
- Each local churches can provide lectures on "Employment and Their Rights" to church members. The lecture fee will go into the funding for production .At same time, church members will also increase the awareness on low-income workers' issues and their needs.
- Churches can also ask for donations from church members.
Production and Distribution
Donation from NGOs + Churches donation and lecture fundrising = money for producing contract+ design.
NGO workers and church volunteers can help to distributing the design to migrant workers. (handing out on streets...etc)
Government could allow the design to be given in the Local Migrants Office, the place where workers have to get their permission to stay in the city when they enter.
