RE:        Yet Another Rape Victim Comes Forward at Classic Sweatshop in Jordan

 

GLHR sent out a press release this morning, including yet another rape victim's testimony from the Classic sweatshop. We are naming four serial rapists at the factory. Wal-Mart, Hanes, Target and Sears continue to hide behind a Jordanian Government Whitewash. Ten years into the U.S. Jordan Free Trade Agreement, the 30,000 mostly young women guest workers who drive Jordan's booming garment export sector still have no rights. The American people are subsidizing the rapes, as Classic sweatshop clothing enters the U.S. duty free.

We advise concerned consumers to avoid buying Wal-Mart, Hanes, Target and Sears clothing made in Jordan.
