Marks and Spencer, refugee children and Turkish exploits!

Postby GreekIslandGirl » Mon Oct 24, 2016 9:14 pm

A while back I posted how crap I found the clothes from Marks and Spencer to be and found they had been manufactured in Turkey ...

I thought M&S had turned a corner ... but NO! :roll:

Like all who deal with Turkey they eventually end up with burnt fingers!

Syrian refugee children have been making clothes for Marks & Spencer (plus others), it has been claimed.

An undercover Panorama investigation of factories in Turkey allegedly found children had been working on clothes for Marks and Spencer and for the online retailer ASOS.

Panorama – Undercover: The Refugees Who Make Our Clothes, to be broadcast on Monday night, will also claim that one factory boasted of making clothes for Next while employing Turkish children and Syrian refugees.

The documentary also claimed to have discovered refugees working illegally on Zara and Mango jeans.

Very funny! It's all about its *commercial aims* ....

There have been no reports of M&S openly showing ideological support for Israel since 2004. The retail company has repeatedly asserted that “[it has] no ‘special’ relationship with any government, political party or religious group” but accepts that M&S does “make representations to governments in support of [its] commercial aims.”

If you don't like that then maybe you should try Marx and Engels :|

Ha! This is what happens when you deal with crappy companies from Turkey!

- M&S about to close 60 stores due to falls in the sales from their clothes sections:

Maybe the child labouring sweat shops in Turkey documentary had something to do with it.
