Dov Charney's Concern About Being Shut Down By The Feds
In a featured article in Portfolio magazine, American Apparel founder and CEO Dov Charney talks about his concerns about getting his factory shut down by the US Immigration department. Dov believes that a number of his high profile ads discussing immigration and the plight of illegal workers prompted a reaction by the government:
Charney’s newspaper spots all but said that American Apparel, like many other U.S. employers, makes use of illegal-immigrant labor. The ads directly criticized the Bush administration and asked the public if maybe it was time to be open and honest about the subject.
