NBA Pulls Made-In Burma Sweatshirts From New York Store - 2004-01-22


The US National Basketball Association has removed clothing made in Burma from its store in New York.

The move follows a complaint from the National Labor Committee -- an anti-sweatshop group -- which said the league was violating a federal law against selling Burmese-made goods.

The organization said the NBA store was selling 'I Love this Game' sweatshirts in the store with tags that said made in Burma. A spokesman for the group said many Burmese factory workers receive less than 7 cents an hour. The sweatshirts sold for $60 each.

A spokesman for the NBA said it was an "isolated incident" and the organization was monitoring the situation closely to make sure it does not happen again.

Last July, President Bush signed a law which barred imports from Burma because of its poor record on human rights.
