Garment Worker Cases

1999

Garment worker cases: APALC brings and resolves a number of cases on behalf of low-wage, immigrant garment workers, over the next few years.  APALC represents both Asian and Latino garment workers, and takes on contractors and name brand manufacturers and retailers such as Reebok, BCBG Maz Azria, XOXO, bebe, etc. In many of these cases, the workers also engage in public campaigns to highlight the exploitation and poor working conditions they face.  APALC wins significant victories in many of these cases (including a $1.4 million default judgment against one factory) and collects hundreds of thousands of dollars for workers.
