Lawsuit filed in NYC against fashion designer

NEW YORK (AP) – A group of employees has sued designer Alexander Wang for allegedly forcing them to work 16-hour days without overtime.

The 30 workers charged that Wang violated numerous New York State labor laws at his Chinatown operation.

According to the New York Post (, the $50 million lawsuit claims the workers had to spend long hours in a cramped, windowless room.

The suit was filed in Queens Supreme Court.

Representatives for Wang declined to comment. They said they had not yet been served with the papers.

Wang opened a flagship store in Chinatown last year.
