Have you heard the rumors? Apparently, A. Wang (or his brother, rather) forced employees to work 25 hour days without breaks and with threats of firing. The man behind the lawsuit also alleges that he was expected to create a pair of high-end luxury pants “from cut to final product” in under 4 hours. Damn, if I’m paying $300 for a pair of pants then they better be made with care and due compensation!
But Alexander Wang is denying allegations:
The company takes its obligations to comply with the law very seriously, including the relevant wage and hour regulations, the payment of overtime to eligible employees and having a safe working environment for all of our employees. We will vehemently defend any allegations to the contrary.
We’ll have to wait and see how this unfolds. I really hope it’s just a worker trying to get rich! Do you buy the charges?
