U.S. clothes chain Urban Outfitters has gained attention in Swedish media for denying collective bargaining rights to employees at their Stockholm store by making all 48 workers redundant and re-hiring them through a employment agency. The Swedish union is upset and calls for tougher legislation. Today the website of the clothing store was hacked and instead of the normal content the visitors of the site were referred to a Facebook-group titled ‘Shame on you Urban Outfitters’.
