Sweatshirts from Sweatshops

Top brass at top colleges promised five years ago to stop buying their logo laden, licensed apparel from companies using overseas sweatshops. They were driven by student protests. Five years later, those protestors have mostly graduated, but a lot of the sweatshirts are still coming from sweatshops. The Hartford Courant found UConn gear stitched the same way they were when UConn President Philip Austin led the promises to stop the practice. (Hartfort Courant)
