Slavery - oooh, I don't think that's a topic they've dug into before have they? (Correct me if I'm wrong)
It certainly does sound interesting, and it sounds like Underworld is about to lose the O'Driscoll's business if I may be allowed to make a prediction!

Corrie has touched on it slightly before - when Carla joined her husband, Paul, at the factory, she wanted to start a line of children's clothing besides the underwear so they forced some Russian machinists to work double time, off the clock and unfortunately one young lady fell down the stairs exhausted and Carla & Paul hid her death until the following morning so they wouldn't get into trouble by forcing their employees to work double shifts.

Yes but they were illegal workers, being paid, that's the difference.

I think they were Рolish also (wiki and katia)

Yes, I also thought they were Polish as well.

That's something Carla never received justice for, or even had much regret for, despite being directly responsible. Her main concern was whether they would get caught.

When people complain about Tracy getting away with murder, they need to remember she's not the only one who has escaped justice.

I dunno, given what Carla's life has been like, I think Karma found it's mark.
