Imagine there’s no union and you face the sack for complaining.
Spanish retailer ZARA is no stranger to controversy. Today, the high street favourite has come under fire again after shoppers reportedly found alarming hidden notes on the tags inside the clothing.
According to Business of Fashion, several factory workers in Istanbul wrote notes pleading for help through handwritten notes that had been woven into various garments.
Notes include discussions of unfair working hours, unsafe working conditions and poor pay. One tag reportedly states:
“I made this item you are going to buy, but I didn’t get paid for it.”
