People are finding hidden messages from exploited workers in their Zara clothing
‘I made this item you’re going to buy’
Employees who were allegedly not paid for work after their manufacturing firm closed are tagging Zara clothing as a means of seeking help.
“I made this item you are going to buy, but I didn’t get paid for it,” the tags read, according to the Associated Press.
According to the tags, the Turkish workers were employed by an independent manufacturer in Istanbul which has since shut down. They're hoping these direct-to-consumer messages will cause buyers to shop elsewhere, giving the massive clothing chain no choice but to start providing workers who manufacture their clothes a payout.
This isn't the first time Zara has been accused of using sweatshops to make their clothing.
During an episode of investigative TV show The League, reporters visited a factory where Bolivian immigrants were said to be working in slave-like conditions for Zara, a Galicia-based company and part of the Inditex clothing group.
According to Forbes, Inditex’s owner, Amancio Ortega, is listed as the 7th richest person in the world, with a net worth of $31 billion.
