Kathie Lee and Walmart in Honduras, El Salvador and China



Children as young as 12 sewed "Kathie Lee" clothing for Wal-Mart under miserable sweatshop conditions in Honduras. They worked 14 hours a day and earned just 22 cents an hour. When the children got out late at night, there was no bus service, so they ran home together singing and whistling, hoping they would not be robbed or sexually assaulted.

  • After Congressional hearings, Kathie Lee Gifford apologized.
  • President Clinton set up a special anti-sweatshop taskforce.
  • Frank Gifford tried to fight Charlie on a flight to Washington, D.C.
  • The Kathie Lee campaign jump-started the entire anti-sweatshop movement in the United State.
