International fashion retailer Zara has come under fire, following reports that factory workers have left messages about unpaid labour in garments in stores.
According to the Associated Press, shoppers in Istanbul have found complaints in clothing, left by Turkish workers who say they have not been paid for the merchandise they created. The complaints have been written on tags, which have been placed into clothing in the stores.
"I made this item you are going to buy, but I didn’t get paid for it," the tag reportedly reads.
According to AP, the tags urge shoppers to support the workers and pressure Zara into paying them three-months worth of wages, plus severance. The tags claim that the workers were employed by Bravo, which closed down overnight.
Zara is yet to comment on the reports at this time.
