Mayumi Lujano Williams sent a message to Arthur L. Peck - Chief Executive Officer of Gap Inc. - Email Address that said:
I am a student in a college level U.S. History class and am currently studying Massachusetts in the 1830s specifically the textile mills in Lowell. I was troubled to learn of the horrendous working conditions experienced by young American women during the time. 1834 Massachusetts and the women, ages 15-29, were working 12-16 hours a day, 6 days a week for a mere 25 cents.
By now you are probably wondering WHY a college student in a U.S. History course is emailing you. Upon doing some research on women and working conditions I came across an article I find to be equally disturbing as the one in my history class and it has to do with your company and the manufacturing of GAP products. As a consumer, I am appalled by the practices of your company from the manufacturing aspects in Bangladesh to your work practices here.
Here is the link of the article in which I make my reference:
Thank you for your time.
