Charlie Kernaghan of the National Labor Committee raised a stink last week when he charged at a Congressional hearing that TV personality Kathie Lee Gifford’s Walmart clothing line was produced in Honduran sweatshops, where underage and pregnant women sew garments for 20 hours a day in extreme heat, for only 31 cents an hour. Kathie Lee has been tearfully trying to defend herself on the air during her TV show.

With Juan Gonzalez

CHARLES KERNAGHAN, NATIONAL LABOR COMMITTEE
