Alexander Wang is denying all charges that he is operating a modern day sweat shop in Manhattan's Chinatown. The designer was hit with a $50 million lawsuit by a group of former employees.
Wang claims the workers were coerced into joining the joint legal action by Wenyu Lu who was dismissed for bullying his co-workers. Wang told WWD...
“The claims regarding sweatshop conditions are completely untrue... In reality, this case was filed by an individual who was let go by the company as a result of serious harassment issues. We stand by our decision to promote a safe workplace environment for all employees regardless of false claims that may be waged against us in retaliation."
