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 (http://nyp.st/yuSEE1 ), 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.
