    I wonder how much Gap pays the people in developing countries who make many of the clothes?

    They don't pay them anything, they don't own the factories in those countries.

    Yes, GAP probably don't own them directly but that doesn't mean it doesn't exercise significant influence over how much the workers are paid.
