What's in Your Closet?


An investigation by The Observer finds enslaved pre-teens sewing Gap clothing in India:

...The derelict industrial unit in which Amitosh and half a dozen other children are working is smeared in filth, the corridors flowing with excrement from a flooded toilet.Behind the youngsters huge piles of garments labelled Gap — complete with serial numbers for a new line that Gap concedes it has ordered for sale later in the year — lie completed in polythene sacks, with official packaging labels, all for export to Europe and the United States in time for Christmas.

Gap, of course, has done the responsible thing... and blamed its subcontractors.
