Labor Secretary Robert Reich is convening his Fashion Forum today, what many are calling the Sweatshop Summit. It follows his testimony yesterday before a House subcommittee on child labor. He was followed by entertainer Kathy Lee Gifford who will also be attending today’s summit following revelations that some of her clothing line was made by child labor in Honduras. Today on Democracy Now, we debate the issue of corporate responsibility.
