American Apparel To Lose 10 Percent of Its Workforce

About two months ago, government officials found that 1,600 American Apparel employees weren't authorized to work in the U.S. A lawyer for the company now says about 1,500 face termination this month as a result — or about 10 percent of the company's entire staff. 
Charney told the workers facing termination they'd get priority for rehire if they can get their papers straightened out. Charney may weep over losing them, but it's purely out of personal connection and deep-rooted feelings, not losing money. A lawyer for American Apparel said the loss won't have a "significant impact" on the brand's productivity, because no one's shopping so they have a bunch of merchandise lying around anyway and don't need any more. -LA Times
