(PITTSBURGH, Pa.) - This AP article has already been picked up by the Washington PostNational Public RadioForbes and the CanadianBusiness.com.

Sanal Kumar, the reportedly corrupt owner of the Classic sweatshop--where scores of young women guest workers from Sri Lanka and Bangladesh have been raped by factory managers-blames U.S. unions and the state of Israel for his factories' problems!

Kohl's, Macy's and Lands End have pulled their orders from the Classic sweatshop in Jordan.

In 2010 alone, the abusive Classic factory was the recipient of some $20 million in tariff breaks-a windfall profit-under the U.S.-Jordan Free Trade Agreement. The American people have a right to ask for our $20 million back.

Wal-Mart, Hanes and Target must agree to an independent, U.S. Government-led investigation of Classic to end the gross violations in the Classic group of factories.

Management continues a reign of terror and repression at the Classic factory.
