Things are not looking good for fashion designer, Alexander Wang. According to the New York Post,there has been a lawsuit filed which lead to labor issues. 30 workers claim they were forced to work 16 hours a day or longer — without overtime — in a suffocating, windowless, 200-square-foot room”. These conditions have violated the state labor laws of New York. These workers are trying to get paid!! You wanna guess the amount? $50 million.
The Post makes note of Lu’s claim that he passed out after working 25 hours straight, followed by stating he was alledgely fired due to his complaining due to such working conditions while applying worker’s comp. Of course, Wang is going to defend himself regards to the charge with a total of $450 million!!
Whether if this story is true or not, but it goes to show you there are some sweatshops underground which these people are working their figures to the bone for people to strut around with their labels. This isn’t the first we hear such stories. We all hear about it from sneakers to diamonds! Lets just hope this story is false. Shit is getting real out here in this economy!
