Child Labor 2

Child Labor  2

This program addresses the moral responsibility of corporations, celebrities, and consumers to combat child labor abuses by knowing where and under what conditions products are manufactured. Included are interviews with human rights activist Charles Koenigen, New York Times columnist Bob Herbert, and former U.S. Secretary of Labor Robert Reich. One segment looks at the issue of a Kathy Lee Gifford clothing line that was being made by children in sweatshops; clips from the film Zoned for Slavery show the children working; then we view footage of her congressional testimony on the issue. In the end Kathy Lee went on to work with government officials to support and enact laws to protect children against sweatshop conditions. We hear from Donna Gibbs of Nike Corporate Communications, Warren Flick of Kmart, and H. Lee Scott Jr. of Wal-Mart on labor issues. Also we see compelling excerpts from Magnus Bergmar's documentary My Life is Mine, about a Pakistani girl freed from her life of bonded slavery in a Pakistani brick factory. 02/12DE JSCA 30 min.
