While the Zara-billionaire Amancio Ortega earns 781 000 USD an hour, the women producing garments for the company make less than a 40 cent.

Ortega is the founder and majority owner of Zara and other brands such as Massimo Dutti and Bershka. He is currently the wealthiest person in Europe with a net worth of 71,3 billion USD and with a recent 2016 dividend of 1,32 billion US dollars. Based on an average of 1689 working hours in Spain he makes 781 500 an hour (13025 dollars per minute).

40 cent an hour

The reality for the women and men producing t-shirts and blouses for Zara is quite different. Garment workers as Bangladesh producing for Zara work for 40 cents an hour. (30 Bangladeshi Taka an hour, 0,6 cents a minute as shown on the video. From this report: https://www.framtiden.no/rapporter/rapporter-2015/777-darlig-rad-med-nal-og-trad/file.html  ).

Zara has not acted on the global call for transparency, in the aftermath of the Rana Plaza tragedy. Many global brands have opened their supplier lists to meet demands from NGOs and unions for more transparency. The company has shown little interest to comply. Transparent supplier list are key to ensure the brands accountability when accidents occur, and to improve working conditions.

Let’s put pressure on Zara: Say your opinion:

We encourage you to go to the facebookpage of Zara https://www.facebook.com/Zara and write a message:   
“Zara, when will you disclose your supplier list? When will your workers earn a living wage?”
