Some people glorify the leading figure of the founder of Zara to the altars of holiness, or simply believe that being grateful is being a good guy. But there are also those who criticize the derisory nature of the donation (compared to his fortune), the tax avoidance of Ortega’s business industry or the scandals of child slavery and labor exploitation found in the INDITEX production chain.
