$450 Million Lawsuit Accuses Alexander Wang Of Running A Sweatshop!

| Filed under: Icky Icky PooLegal MattersAlexander Wang


We hope Alexander Wang has a good lawyer because he's gonna need it.

Thirty workers have filed a $450 million lawsuit against the designer and his brother Dennis Wang for allegedly running a sweatshop in NYC's Chinatown.

One employee in particular, Wenyu Lu, claims he was hospitalized after passing out from working 25 hours straight without a break. Lu also says he was fired in February after complaining about labor law violations and bad working conditions.

The lawsuit seeks $50 million for each of the 9 violations, which Alexander Wang has already denied.

Wang's rep said in a statement:

"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 certainly hope so!
