NEW DELHI — Apparel manufacturers here are increasingly anxious about a boycott because of child labor abuses.
The U.S. Department of Labor’s Bureau of International Affairs last month included India’s textiles and apparel industry on a list of countries and industries that use forced or indentured child labor. There are 29 products on the list from 21 countries, including cotton from Benin, Burkina Faso, China, Tajikstan and Uzbekistan; carpets from Nepal and Pakistan, and diamonds from Sierra Leone. There are also several products from Burma, from which the U.S. has an import ban.
