He may be Spain's richest person but he became so by his own efforts. His father was a railway worker and he left school at fourteen. Perhaps you should read his Wikipedia entry:

I said he may be but, anyway, as with anyone, wealthy or not, there is more to people than how much money they have.

Underpaying by half hour per day is not legal but hardly slave labour compared to fruit pickers etc. There are many thousands working in glass houses in Andalucia for less than 3 euro an hour. Had this in my spam last week.

Workers in Almeria and Huelva, southern Spain have been confined to the cramped settlements where they live, by recent social distancing laws. Many are without access to running water, basic sanitation, food and other vital supplies. Ethical Consumer is working with local organisations to support them.

Just 'looking around' the electricals is the best course of action in Carrefour!
