Description

A 20/20 investigation finds that top American clothing manufacturers, including Ralph Lauren, the Gap, Liz Claiborne and the Disney Company (parent of ABC), are using Chinese workers housed in crowded and often rat infested barracks on the Pacific island of Saipan to produce clothing labeled, "Made in the U.S.A." The workers have to pay off government officials in China for the right to work in Saipan and are forbidden to participate in any religious, political or union activity.
