CHILD LABOUR

Made in Turkey

We’ve all read the news reports and seen the Panorama  and other TV investigations and exposees showing the horrendous conditions in garment factories in the Indian subcontinent. We probably then looked at the labels in our clothes and were happy when we saw ‘Made in Turkey’ thinking something on the lines of ‘Well, at least it’s better than Bangladesh, Turkey even wants to join the EU – they can’t be that bad …’

Now it comes closer – much closer – to home.
