1. Alexander Wang was hit with a $50M lawsuit, and accused of running a sweatshop in Chinatown. 56-year old Wenyu Lu, who was hospitalized for several days due to work-induced exhaustion, is suing Wang for inhumane working conditions in his Chinatown operation.
The worker passed out after a 25-hour working day, and was told he would be fired if he didn't "follow orders." He was then fired on February 16th, after complaining about the working conditions and applying for worker's compensation. So far, 30 workers have joined Lu in a class-action suit over the exploitative treatment in Wang's "suffocating, windowless, 200-square-foot room." [NYPost]
