Shock? Gap uses child labor

From abcnews.com:
Video taken by Dan McDougall, a freelance journalist in New Delhi, India, and acquired by ABC News, showed Gap labels being stitched into garments and the location of a work room in a slum.

McDougall said the children working in the sweatshop were between the ages of 10 and 13 and slept on the roof.

"There was an overflowed latrine, bowls of rice covered in flies, a lot of mosquitoes, quite a putrid smell inside the sweatshop," he said.

While Gap continues its investigation, the company said the garments made by the children never will be sold in its stores and the order has been scrapped.
