Dean of students discovers origin of his apparel

No Sweat!, a local group against the use of sweatshop labor for University apparel, joined in a weekend-long panel discussion examining IU’s free trade practices. The discussions defined free trade, evaluated the University’s past performance and offered solutions for the future.

Among those in attendance were No Sweat!’s Philip Shelton, who told us he owns some University apparel made in foreign countries. He said the merchandise was given to him as a gift.

Dick McKaig, IU dean of students, told us his Hurricane Katrina relief bracelet was made in China, a country Shelton said is the world’s worst violator of sweatshop labor laws.
