Zara: Shame on you!

The Zara logo is seen on a clothes hanger in one of its stores. Shoppers in Istanbul discovered notes in clothing saying workers had not been paid at the Bravo Tekstil factory in Turkey, according to widespread media reports this month.

It pains me to write this post.  So, the CBC covered a story on the desperate plea of Zara’s garment workers in Turkey.  This should really come as no surprise to people, but it will.  How desperate these garment workers must be to be sending out letters of SOS.  Heartwrenching.  Looks like not much has changed since Rana Plaza.  Interested to hear everyone else’s thoughts on this.  Please leave your opinion/comments below.  Read the full story here:
