Today's WWD may be a little funky so far, but there's at least one story they made sure to get up there, and it's pretty dire. They've broken that there's been a sweatshop operating out of Long Island City (which we've always heard was a nice, cute place with great views of the city) that's been employing "over 100 mostly immigrant workers" with illegally low wages and overtime hours since 2005. The workers have been manufacturing garments for a company that supplies clothes for Macy's, Gap, Banana Republic, Express, Victoria's Secret, Limited and Coldwater Creek. Workers were being paid on a per-garment basis, completing each one in under a minute. They had even been coached on how to respond to suspicious investigations, in case that ever happened. We're not surprised that there are sweatshops, but more so that this was happening so close to home. But what's the response from each of these companies going to be?
