ISTANBUL - Turkish workers making garments for global brands - including Adidas, C&A, Hugo Boss, H&M, Zara owner Inditex, Levi’s, Marks & Spencer, Next, Nike and Primark - are earning only a quarter of the living wage, according to campaigners.

The Clean Clothes Campaign Turkey (CCC Turkey) says the legal minimum wage in Turkey is only a quarter of the amount needed to cover basic essentials such as accommodation, food and medical needs.

It says that means that 1.5 million garments workers working for suppliers to global brands are earning "poverty pay" which leaves them struggling to meet the basic needs of their families.
