#ChangeZara Campaign Shows Results for New York Retail Workers

January 6, 2015

The #ChangeZara campaign began for workers at the retail clothing chain's stores in New York City last May, with employees asking for more pay and for the company to treat them with dignity and respect. The efforts finally paid off when the company texted the workers that they would be receiving a wage increase this January. Zara also is increasing the number of full-time positions in its stores. For many employees, the raise is significant. Valery Jourdan, for instance, will see her salary increase by $2.50 an hour.
