Recent reports show that some Gap clothing was being made in an Indian sweatshop with child labor. How can manufacturers monitor the factories that they hire to have better control over the products they produce?

Unless consumers pay attention to where a product is made and not necessarily look for the cheapest cost of a product these abuses with children will continue.




absolutely true. unfortunately too many people turn a blind eye to these abuses because a "bargain" is more important to them. in the long run, however, the "bargain" is anything but!

And gap is trying to be the good guys by having their "Red" brand...but then this comes out...hahaha




It all has to do with how much attention to details the upper management of any company wants to pay.
Child abuse can be avoided but it may be more profitable for a company to take the negative press heat over profits.

Its true that its could be more profitable to take the heat form the press then to stop all the child labor but I know that the only way for them to really be hurt by this issue is to boycot their store. I know that I wont be shopping there anythime soon.




It does not effect us so why should we care. Keep those low priced Nikes coming.




Not sure how President Bush's economic stimulus package with work if Americans do not discriminate what they are buy with their rebate checks. Considering most products are made over seas, it will be a real chore not to buy products made in china.





Unless we begin to do a better job at home and in our schools explaining to our children why they need to study and get a good education.... they will become the next Sweat-Shop Labor force.




I want cheap prices and will go to the welfare office to pick up my check so I can buy them.

(I just can't find any meaningful work in the States).




Concur ! Thanks for posting.

Again, the fault lies with these American companies who do not inspect these facilities. Why?? THey do not care!!!! If they did, they would retain the factories here!!!
