  5. 5. GAP Inc. <ul><li>Why don’t you pay factory workers more? Workers’ wages are determined by law and the factory that employs them. As one of many customers of a factory, we negotiate prices for finished products. However, our Code of Vendor Conduct clearly requires that factories pay workers the local legal minimum, or prevailing industry wage, whichever is higher. We actively monitor payment of wages to ensure that workers are consistently being paid the wages they are entitled to for the hours they’ve worked, including overtime. In instances where we've discovered non-compliance, we have forced payment of back wages and required factories to improve record keeping. To earn and keep our business, factories must compensate workers appropriately for all hours worked. </li></ul>
