Investigations into the awful child labour conditions in India have thrown up GAP as one the companies that are using these companies who exploit young workers who can be as young as ten.
They were caught red handed by an investigating team from the Observer newspaper from the UK.
However GAP has denied all knowledge of this practice, and so they feel cannot be directly held responsible for what sub contractors do, but they are not pleased to be involved if only indirectly to this sort of operation. Naturally the head office of GAP is probably completely unaware of this, but is that a good enough excuse?
