In recent weeks, shoppers in Istanbul found notes in their newly bought Zara brand clothes that complained that workers who produced these clothes had not been paid. The issue dates back to earlier this year when the Bravo Tekstil factory in Istanbul suddenly closed down leaving around 140 workers being owed many months of wages. While the company has claimed it is working on setting up a hardship fund, any back pay has yet to materialise. Incidents like this only serve to highlight the brutal race to the bottom that companies like Zara engage in, in order to reap the highest possible profits.
